Big Game Issues at the Forefront of ‘Wild at Heart’ Fundraiser

Wild at Heart

Manitoba’s great outdoors are being celebrated by hunters, anglers and wildlife enthusiasts alike next month.

The fourth annual Wild at Heart fundraising banquet will raise funds for the Manitoba Wildlife Federation’s wildlife conservation and education programs on Thursday, November 5.

“We believe our outdoor heritage and the time-honoured traditions of hunting and angling must be preserved for future generations,” said Brian Strauman, president of the MWF.

“The number of moose in Manitoba is at an all-time low and there are real concerns about deer, elk and caribou populations as well. The MWF’s Big Game Crisis Campaign will be front and centre at the Wild at Heart event.”

The evening’s keynote speaker will be wildlife expert, Rob Olson, managing director MWF.

Tickets are $65 for adults and $25 for youth through the MWF by calling (204) 633-5967 or by e-mail at info@mwf.mb.ca. Wild at Heart takes place at the Victoria Inn Hotel & Convention Centre.
