ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN
ProtectThePrairie.ca is a campaign supported by those who value the natural beauty of our native prairie grasslands and want to protect what is left of them.
Now that the federal government has passed responsibility for these majestic lands back to the provinces of Saskatchewan and Manitoba, walking away from decades of conservation stewardship, these natural wonders now stand threatened. The Saskatchewan government has announced its intention to sell to the highest bidder and throw this heritage jewel under the blade of energy and other development.
Our objective is to stop this reckless approach and make sure that balanced use, conservation and environmental protection guarantees are firmly in place before decisions about the future are taken.
The campaign is sponsored by the Agriculture Union – PSAC and is supported by the Saskatchewan branch of the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS) and the Saskatchewan Environmental Society.
