Top issues in this provincial election
Your vote matters
Over the next two months, we encourage you to learn more about the current environmental and conservation concerns and opportunities in Alberta, because they impact all Albertans.
Your vote matters. It can shape whether these issues will be prioritized and, consequently, the future of our parks, protected areas, public lands and the critters that inhabit them. We are a non-partisan organization that remains steadfastly committed to ensuring that our wild spaces and species thrive — and we therefore urge you to vote for nature in our upcoming election.
As you decide what that means for you, and investigate each candidate’s platform, here are some key considerations to take into account.

Parks & Protected Areas
How will the support Albertans have shown for increased protected areas be applied to decision making?
Albertan’s love their parks – it’s no secret. From Lesser Slave Lake to Kananaskis and beyond, our incomparable parks and protected areas are both the places we go to play, as well as invaluable habitat for iconic wildlife, like grizzly bear and caribou.
How can we manage our public lands more sustainably?
Alberta is blessed with an abundance of beautiful landscapes, from the grasslands and prairies of the south to the boreal forests in the north.Given the diverse range of ecosystems and land uses across our province, however, it is not enough to create and manage protected areas alone.

Species at Risk
How will species at risk receive the attention they need to thrive?
Our province is home to a rich diversity of species, all of which are worth celebrating and protecting. When our ecosystems are healthy, functioning and resilient, wildlife thrive – and so do we!
