You’ve made the decision to support the great work being done by the Canadian Wildlife Federation. However, you’d feel better about making that donation knowing how your contribution will be put to use. With our Symbolic Gift program, you can allocate an amount based on the costs involved in carrying out conservation programs across Canada. Below are some examples of the costs associated with conservation activity being done on behalf of Canada’s wildlife.
