Agriculture is considered the lifeblood of the prairies – integral to the economy and the well-being of many communities. However, this has come at an environmental cost. While agriculture has taken a toll on the land, many growers in Saskatchewan are leading the way in finding sustainable solutions.
Our Saskatchewan species are suffering as a result of instability. This instability isn’t just caused by factors related to the environment or the human footprint; a lack of consistent engagement in wildlife protection initiatives significantly impacts progress. We must hold ourselves and our governments – our leaders – accountable for advocating and implementing effective strategies so conservation progress can endure.
