It's hard to ignore the daring nature of a campaign that's working to protect not one but 12 marine areas from coast to coast to coast. At least, that's how we feel about our latest campaign, Dare to be Deep
, in partnership with the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society.
Throughout the year, we'll be working with CPAWS to inspire 12,000 Canadians who we hope will endorse our campaign to protect 12 marine areas we've identified through science and research as needing permanent protection. We plan to take the 12,000 names we collect and present them to the Canadian Federal Government at the end of the year. The question is, do you think we can pull it off?
We've posted a handful of photos, below, that feature six of the 12 marine areas we're working to protect.
