Wildlife Wednesday: National Wildlife Week

This Wildlife Wednesday, we\’re switching things up a bit. Learn about National Wildlife Week!

For today’s Wildlife Wednesday post, we’re switching things up a bit, by celebrating National Wildlife Week.
National Wildlife Week is celebrated annually, during the week of April 10, and is organized by the Canadian Wildlife Federation (CWF). The week is meant to celebrate Canada’s amazing wildlife, and also to help promote conservation efforts.
Celebrate National Wildlife Week!
The CWF encourages Canadians to take a moment from our busy days to celebrate National Wildlife Week by walking in the wild spaces close to us. Check out the CWF website for more info.
