Take Action: Protect Our Native Trout

From CPAWS Southern Alberta:

Westslope cutthroat trout are facing a crisis in Alberta, as populations are declining rapidly due to habitat degradation, over-harvesting and the introduction of non-native species. But you have a chance to ensure these beautiful native fish thrive, rather than decline further into extinction, by telling decision makers to implement a strong recovery plan for the threatened species.

On or before July 13, tell the government you care about native trout recovery by providing input on the draft federal Recovery Strategy and Action Plan for Alberta populations of Westslope Cutthroat Trout.

Continuity and support for energy efficiency makes sense for Albertans, say 15 Alberta groups

Joint letter on the future of energy efficiency in Alberta

A joint letter from 15 Alberta community and environmental groups is urging the provincial government to implement meaningful energy efficiency policies and programs. 

Energy efficiency is common sense, says the letter. Supporting energy efficiency in Alberta creates jobs, invests in our communities and businesses and maintains opportunities for Albertans to save money. Not only does energy efficiency make fiscal sense, it is an achievable approach to reduce our province’s emissions.
