CANADA – URGENT PRESS RELEASE: CONSERVATION WRITING CONTEST FOR CANADIAN SCHOOLS – Help Save Alberta’s Wild Heritage Horses!
Follow & Tweet this Hashtag! #SaveAlbertasWildHorses
Kelly Little, a British Columbia writer and member of the Canadian Association of Journalists and Calgary nature/conservation photographer Susan Armstrong have joined forces in an effort to save Alberta’s Wild Heritage Horses before the government issues culling licenses in December 2013; under the auspices of Environment and Sustainable Resource Development!
We are inviting all Canadian schools to participate by writing essays and signing a petition that will be sent to the Alberta Government. Essays will also be published at 1Life196Countries.com
Essays will answer the question, “Why should we protect and conserve our Wild Heritage Horses and how will it affect the future of our children and the environment if we don’t?”
The school with the most entries will win an autographed poster of Alberta’s wild horses from Susan Armstrong.
In December 2013, The Alberta Government is planning to issue trapping licenses which, for almost every horse, means – DEATH. To prevent this SLAUGHTER we are asking for your support.
*Please go to http://stop-the-killing-of-albertas-wild-horses.susanarmstrongphotography.com/ and sign the petition, share it and then, enter your essay.
To date we have 2800 signatures but need more than 10,000!
Trapping licenses are set to be issued December 2013 so this matter is time sensitive!
*Help us get the word out by printing and taking this letter directly to your school principal or teacher! Deadline for essays is December 22, 2013
Please visit 1life196countries.com for a background on the issue and share with your students, friends and family.
*For more information, to confirm your participation and to enter your essays, please email Kelly Little at: firstname.lastname@example.org
“ONE OF THE THINGS I still CHERISH ABOUT TRAVELLING THROUGHOUT BRITISH COLUMBIA AS A CHILD WAS SEEING THE WILD HORSES BUCKING AND FROLICKING IN THE FIELDS AS WE DROVE BY. IN THE OKANAGAN THERE WAS A PARTICULAR SPOT THAT WARMED MY HEART BECAUSE THE WILDIE POPULATION WAS ENORMOUS – SOMETHING I WOULD HAVE LIKED TO SHARE WITH MY CHILDREN. WHEN WE PASS THE SPOT NOW, ALL I CAN DO IS VERBALLY SHARE A MEMORY, AS THE FIELDS ARE EMPTY – MY CHILDREN FEEL ROBBED AND I DON’T BLAME THEM, this is how extinction happens!
AND NOW, IT’S GOING TO HAPPEN IN ALBERTA UNDER THE AUSPICES OF ENVIRONMENT AND SUSTAINABLE RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT!” Kelly little
