Graeme Gibson

Birds represent hope. As my late spouse Graeme Gibson noted in his popular ‘Bedside Book of Birds’, for many cultures in many times birds represented the human spirit, its endurance, its resilience. 

And hope is something we all can use at this moment on our collective history.

Margaret Atwood

We have a choice to make now. We can return to our former path of destruction of the natural world…or we can change direction and build nature-based and community-based recovery strategies.


In tribute to these two nature champions, please give today to save bird species and restore nature.

Canada’s wilderness is the world’s envy. It’s our duty to keep our true north strong and green.
