We Are the World Blogfest #WATWB

It’s the last Friday of the month–time again for some good news to take you into August with a smile.

The story I’ve chosen for this month is one that celebrates a Canadian conservation achievement: the Nature Conservancy of Canada has managed to raise CAD $20M to purchase a rare “snow forest” in British Columbia, thereby protecting the habitats of about 40 at-risk species.

Here’s how #WATWB works: On the last Friday of each month a number of bloggers participate in a blog hop in which each blogger highlights a story that spreads good news, happiness, and hope.

These are the cohosts for this month: Shilpa GargDan Antion, Mary GieseSimon Falk, and Damyanti Biswas

    Thanks for sharing this story for our WATWB, Amy. If only there were more of these initiatives. I had the pleasure of visiting BC in 2002 and loved the place. Very happy to be reading this story.

      I’m inspired by it, too. It reminds me of the story of the husband and wife team who bought up millions of acres (I think) in Patagonia to save and preserve the environment there.

      Isn’t that a great story? I’ve been thinking about it for days. I would love to see something like that happen on a larger scale all over the world. Thanks for dropping in!
