A Gift of Nature for the Southwestern Manitoba Mixed-Grass Prairie IBA

For Canada’s 150th birthday, Nature Canada and CPAWs are asking governments to protect far more of Canada’s wilderness. There is an opportunity to show your support for designating a number of different sites in Canada by sharing on social media and signing the pledge for a ‘Gift of Nature’. There are 3 sites which both organisations would like to see protected in Manitoba, including the Southwestern Manitoba Mixed-Grass Prairie IBA. It would be great if as many birders out there as possible could show their support for this, Manitoba’s most threatened IBA.
