If so, this just may be the opportunity you have been looking for! WWF-Canada’s ‘Earth Flotilla’ is setting sail on an exciting six-day adventure and is looking for youth from the North. Participants will live aboard the ship, participate in workshops (both on land and at sea) and interact with local specialists, all with the focus of learning to live in balance with nature. The Earth Flotilla will be sailing March 16-21, primarily in the waterways between Vancouver and Victoria. Stops on the Gulf Islands will include tours of sustainable forestry operations, organic farms and ecologically designed homes. Marine biologists will lead participants on shoreline explorations with the chance for plenty of hands-on learning.If you are interested in finding out more about this unique opportunity please visit www.wwf.ca/youth or locally call Jody Bissett at 559-4703.
