2013 Martha Kostuch Annual Wilderness and Wildlife Lecture

Oct 26 2013 (All day)

With special guest speaker:

Lorraine Mitchelmore
President and Country Chair, Shell Canada Ltd.

Over much of the past century Alberta's natural environment has been caught in the grip of ever increasing resource extraction. Riches from Alberta's lands have economically benefited many here at home, nationally and internationally. But now there is growing recognition from within the province and from outside that Alberta cannot maintain its water and air quality, its arable soil base and its indigenous wildlife without major changes towards ecological sustainability. Alberta has literally raced into its present environmental predicament; now, in determining our future, how can AWA best bridge gaps and maintain forward momentum towards a goal of ecological sustainability? How will we best work with a variety of partners to secure a legacy of abundant native wildlife and natural wild spaces, of clean water and air, and the soil base we depend upon for food supply, all of these being integral parts of ecological stability?
