Canada has some amazing wilderness – from grand watersheds to majestic forests to vast oceans – and the only way to keep these spaces accessible and intact is to protect them and show our support for their existence. committing to a challenge shows your support for Canada’s wild spaces, and the funds you raise go to CPAWS conservation campaigns to protect Canada’s at-risk wilderness. Once you register your challenge, ask your family, friends, or colleagues to support you with a donation through your Big Wild Challenge page.
