Why Canada?

I want to take you on a journey of Canada as I see it - a country rich in wild places and wild creatures, and full of incredibly passionate people working to save them.

Whether in the densest city or most remote wildnerness, there are stories of conservation in action that serve to inspire me every day with what is possibly the greatest challenge of our time - protecting life on earth.

This project will give you the chance to hear those stories and see some of the most amazing places Canada has to offer. Let's get going!
