A Sponsored Run for Wilderness Protection
Walk for the Wild
What is this all about?
At the Walk for the Wild, students can protect their own piece of wilderness with the help of sponsors and athletic commitment. It is the perfect opportunity to effectively get involved: for the diverse northern rainforest globally, for climate protection and greener schools locally. The “Walk for the Wild” event encourages kids to take action! Adults have the opportunity to do the same thing during the Wilderness Team Challenge.
The walk for students
More and more wilderness areas disappear from our earth. In Canada they still exist: thousand-year-old giant trees, salmon-fishing grizzly bears and howling wolves. The temperate rainforest is not only the most species-rich ecosystem in the Northern Hemisphere, but also the lungs of our planet: it binds most of the CO2 in its biomass. In lectures we inform the students about their peculiarities and their threat. This environmental education work is an elementary part of the wilderness run. You can register through your school.
