There are many organizations working steadfastly towards conservation goals and that rely on our support for their continued work. Bird Studies Canada – Canada's premiere bird science and conservation organization – promotes the Great Canadian Birdathon annually as fundraising event. I’m proud to announce that our very own Justin Peter (Director of Programs of Quest Nature Tours) is participating! His team consists of fellow members of the Toronto Ornithological Club’s board of directors (Justin is Vice-President). Together they will choose one day in May and attempt to see as many different bird species as possible in the Toronto area; part of the funds pledged to the team’s efforts will be returned to the Toronto Ornithological Club in support of its local education and conservation efforts.
We at Worldwide Quest have sponsored Justin and his team. May I suggest that you consider joining us and supporting Justin too? If you’d like to do so, you can visit Justin’s team page here, then click on his name at bottom and then click the “Give Now” button on the next page. I also encourage you to consider supporting a team near you or to organize your own birdathon team. Find out how to form your own team here.
