Many thanks to volunteers that helped out by taking immediate action yesterday, January 23 during some heavy snow with freezing rain causing crusting layers. Trail breaking had started and response off of our Deer Save Facebook page was very encouraging. Currently we have a regularly updated list of about 160 landowners allowing permission on their properties to allow deer save efforts. While this recent weather was harsh, it was not a concern for intense long term emergency action needed, however, assisting deer by breaking trails help the deer conserve energy and access food.
Should emergency protocol efforts be placed in effect, the Ministry of Natural Resources will confirm conditions requiring feeding permission and many volunteers on the island (some retired MNR) are ready to jump in and start the ball rolling. This is a big process and would not run smoothly without all those involved.
If you have property on the island and want to give permission for volunteers to access to break trails and possibly feed, or if you want to place your name down as a volunteer, please contact Sue Meert at (705) 859-1653.
Jesse made a trip to Sheshegwaning to talk to the Grade 6 & 7 class about the importance of environmental habitat health and impact of humans on nature. The students enjoyed their time with Jesse and are sure to become stewards of their community!
