80% of Saskatchewan's grasslands have already been lost forever. Now, the federal community pasture system is being dismantled, putting even more native grasslands at risk, while also leaving ranchers and critters out in the cold. Along with our friends at the Saskatchewan Environmental Society, CPAWS-Saskatchewan is very happy to be working with the Public Service Alliance of Canada on this campaign asking that governments make sure that balanced use, conservation and environmental protection guarantees are firmly in place before decisions are taken about our prairie grasslands’ future.
