PLT: The first show aired last night (Thurs.). So please watch for a repeat! I'm also a day late posting the item, below. But, once again, please note the CBC always repeats the shows, both on CBC TV and CBC New Channel!
When I set out to become an environmental lawyer, I never imagined that I’d end up on national television.
But tonight, you’ll see me on The Nature of Things (8 p.m. on CBC TV), talking about Alberta’s dwindling boreal caribou herds, the struggles they face and how Ecojustice is trying to protect them.
Tune in tonight and learn how oilsands expansion is contributing to the decline of caribou herds in northeastern Alberta. Some herds have declined by more than 70 per cent in the last 15 years.
That’s not all. More oilsands development also means more demand for risky pipelines, more emissions leading to climate change and more degradation of the air, water, and land we all depend on. This kind of unsustainable development is a recipe for disaster, and that’s why Ecojustice is committed to doing our part to slow oilsands expansion. We’re:
When it comes to protecting caribou and slowing oilsands development in northern Alberta, our work’s far from done. But thanks to your ongoing support, Ecojustice is able to use our legal and scientific expertise to push for sustainable solutions that protect and restore the environment we share.
So please, tune in to The Nature of Things tonight and see how you’ve helped us make a difference.
