A couple of fun things from the end of 2021

Hi Paov,

How’s the transition from 2021 to 2022 going? Feel a bit like we’re on a train that just won’t stop?

We have a couple of fun things from the end of 2021 we wanted to share that we hope will make your new year just a little bit brighter.

In a quiet, COVID-19-safe moment in December on Vancouver Island, my colleague Torrance presented the 29th annual Eugene Rogers Environmental Award to Pacheedaht First Nation Elder Bill Jones, an ally and friend of the Wilderness Committee for more than a decade. Elder Bill has been relentless in the fight to permanently protect the remaining old-growth forests on the Island.

Some of you have likely attended an in-person presentation of this award over the past three decades at an annual open house. This time you can check out a video of Elder Bill accepting the award, sharing his kindness and inspiring words. We are honoured to work with Elder Bill and grateful for all his support, friendship and teachings over the years.

Another thing we used to do in person each fall is present our year in review video summarizing all the cool stuff we accomplished thanks to you. Check out this 48-minute video with some exciting highlights from May 2020 to April 2021 narrated by Protected Areas Campaigner Joe Foy. It’s guaranteed to brighten the coldest or rainiest day. Are you the kind of person who loves a deep dive into the details? Then you can read all of the successes in our stunning, photo-illustrated 2021 Annual Report.

Your action on campaigns, trust with your donations and encouragement in all the ways you support this work made these 2021 wins possible.

As we dive into 2022 head first, I hope these stories remind you how much more we accomplish when we do it together.

For the wild,
Beth Clarke
