Before starting this job program I didn’t even know about The Blue Whale Project happening right here in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, I also didn’t know they had a program called Wild Child in Nova Scotia and PEI where kids get off the electronics and go outdoors to play and experience nature which is something I definitely would want to take my children to in the future.
Another interesting thing I found out is that the Sierra Club was a key player behind the cleanup of the Sydney Tar Ponds which has since been developed into Open Hearth Park. If SCCF hadn’t worked to have the Tar Sands cleaned up, my dad wouldn’t have had a job at the time, and we would’ve been struggling back then.
I feel like the Watch for Wildlife program should get more recognition from everyone. It truly is a great program and is very informative; and I feel that more people need to be educated about this and there are still a lot of Nova Scotians that aren’t.
