The Canadian Wildlife Federation’s Goose Gala is an evening held in support of our most precious resource – Canada’s wildlife and wild spaces. These are the things that define us internationally, the images most often associated with our beautiful country. From majestic mountains to vast waterways and abundant wildlife, Canada offers its citizens more opportunity to be experience the awe-inspiring wonder of nature than another other country in the world.

Canada’s 150 year history has been inextricably tied to such natural wonders and diversity of wildlife. How we connect to nature over the next 150 years will be determined by the efforts we take to ensure its survival. Our 2017 Goose Gala theme of #ConserveTheWonder reflects our efforts to reconnect Canadians to the sense of wonder to be enjoyed when immersed in nature’s glory. Through that connection we hope to promote the vision of #NatureForAll.

For 55 years, the Canadian Wildlife Federation has promoted common sense, collaborative conservation to protect wildlife and wild places. CWF has always been dedicated to instilling in people a lifelong appreciation of the natural world and a lasting commitment to stewardship. To our affiliates, funders, supporters, members and partners, thank you for helping us make these successes possible. Because of you, we speak with one powerful voice for conserving wildlife and wild places. With your continued help, we will strive to generate lasting achievements designed to #ConserveTheWonder.

About Us

Canada is a nation of vast wilderness – soaring mountains,calm fresh waters, raging rivers, lush forests and abundant wildlife. We live in a country rich in natural resources – the basis for our strong economy. No matter where you live – be it in the city or the country – you can experience nature in your own backyard and community.

The Canadian Wildlife Federation has spent the last 55 years working diligently to foster this Canadian way of life. We deliver programs that encourage people to experience the great outdoors, discover the wonders of nature and learn about the many threats it faces. We also challenge government and industry to improve legislation and practices for wildlife and habitat. We conduct and sponsor scientific research to help better understand how we may help wildlife. We believe that we can all make a difference for wildlife- we believe our children deserve a future filled with the wonders of nature.We invite you to learn more about our programs by visiting
