International Bird Congress
Nature Trust Chair Ron Anderson and the Honourable Carla Qualtrough
The Nature Trust was pleased to host a reception on the opening day of the International Bird Congress in Vancouver in August. We were delighted that the Honourable Carla Qualtrough, Minister of Public Services and Procurement and Accessibility, MP for Delta, the Honourable George Heyman, Minister of Environment and Climate Change Strategy for the Province of BC, Congress organizer Bob Elner and Vancouver International Bird Week organizer Dr. Rob Butler, past director of The Nature Trust of BC attended and other guests.
As our CEO Jasper Lament shared during his comments, " BC has the highest number of bird species of any province or territory in Canada. The single most important way to protect birds and other wildlife is to protect their habitat."
