Save The Wild Bison Canada, Northern Bison Campaign
“Free Roaming Human- Cross-Country on Foot for Wild Bison”
For Immediate Release- April 29,2007
Contact Kalanu Buffalo, email@example.com
Starting on May 15, 2007, former Buffalo Field Campaign volunteer and current Northern Bison Campaign Coordinator Kalanu Buffalo will be embarking from Victoria, B.C., on a cross-Canada walk in honour of wild bison in Canada and the United States.
“Few people are aware that there are wild bison left in North America.” said Kalanu “Fewer still realize how threatened their future is. My goal; the goal of all wild bison activists, is to see wild bison roaming this continent again. I am embarking on this journey to spread the message that the buffalo need to roam, the buffalo need protection, our wild spaces need protection, and wildness itself needs to be honoured and respected above industry, development and domestication.”
During this journey, the only non-foot transportation Kalanu will be taking will be the ferry from Victoria to Vancouver and the ferry from Nova Scotia to Newfoundland.
“The purpose of avoiding vehicle travel is to make a point that we want wild buffalo to re-populate this continent again, and we want them to do it on their own four feet, not in the back of a cattle truck.”
If you would like to help provide Kalanu with accommodation or food along the way, or would like to arrange an interview or speaking engagement, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
