We have a shared responsibility to wildlife. For as long as there have been people, there have been dangers to wildlife. Alberta Institute for Wildlife Conservation (AIWC) believes that our responsibility to wildlife goes far beyond the walls of our clinic.
Education programs emphasizing the importance of environmental protection may be the most important investment we can offer Alberta’s youth.
Please note that for Fall/Winter 2020 all programs will be restricted to virtual presentations only, unless social distancing measures are possible at your facility. Please contact us at email@example.com or 403-946-2361 to discuss this more.
