“Is the protection of the 900 belugas of the St. Lawrence one of your hopes for the future? What if we rose to that challenge…in just 100 days?” The David Suzuki Foundation summons the population to request that the leaders of the five main federal political parties make a commitment to officially designate critical habitat of the St. Lawrence beluga in the first 100 days of their term.
Over 1000 messages have already been sent to date. Objective: 5000 messages and the protection of the St. Lawrence belugas.
The survival of the St. Lawrence beluga is linked to that of many other species, including our own, with which it shares a rich and fragile ecosystem.
