SkeenaWild Conservation Trust The Stream: Your Regional Update

image dsc

January 2014

Embrace the New Year by celebrating the spirit of the eagle and the transformative power of community connection.  2014 is full of promise and sure to reflect many shifts and changes.  It is time now to collaborate, educate and empower.  This month, learn about the conservation issues that matter most to our supporters, and find out the winners of the SW 2013 Promo Draw.

A Courageous Messenger

Did you know that an eagle's vision is eight times stronger than ours, enabling them to see great distances and even beneath the surface of water?  They also possess profound strength and agility. 

Life looks different from an aerial view, and during challenging times we can learn from the eagle by taking a step back to expand our view and see the big picture.  By looking at the past and present objectively, we can begin to let go of restricting patterns and courageously fly towards a more healthy and balanced future.
