The Canadian Wildlife Federation inspires Canadians to take action against climate change. Climb for Change organizers Mary Krupa and Mary Jo Schnepf are climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest peak, to bring global warming awareness to new heights while raising funds for CWF's climate change initiatives.
According to a recent Canada Speaks survey conducted by Sympatico/MSN, Canadians are ready to confront climate change; ninety-one per cent agree that it is their responsibility to take an active role in securing a climate-friendly future. Climb for Change illustrates how some Canadians are going to great heights to make a difference.
"We are incredibly excited to be involved in raising awareness about climate change and what each of us can do to make a positive difference," says Ms. Krupa. "Though influenced and inspired from various life experiences with myriad expectations, both expressed and personal, this clatter of climbers will be pleased if their climb draws attention to issues facing our shared planet."
