Giving Tuesday is almost here! This global movement is inspired by the endless generosity of so many kind-hearted people the world over. Friends and supporters, this year, we could really use vital rescue and safety supplies for our Canid Response Team members. Every dollar donated from now through Giving Tuesday and the end of this month will be used to purchase items such as protective clothing and footwear to keep our team members safe at all hours, headlamps and lighting supplies for night rescue, specialized capture and extrication tools, and trail cameras to assist with active rescue cases.
Our two big wish list items for 2024 are for "real-time" trail cameras (SpyPoint, Tactacam, Muddy) that run on a monthly subscription - as the canid enters the secure location, we are able to respond immediately. Our second necessity for rescuing wildlife is a "Thermal Imaging Camera" which allows us the ability to locate sick or injured animals that may be in difficult-to-access places.
Our other critical outreach efforts involve the "Coexisting with Canids" door hanger campaign. Our effective, free resources and coexistence programs for the public reached over fifty communities across North America. Through your support during last year's Giving Tuesday campaign, we were able to mail out close to 5000 door hangers so far in 2023, saving countless wild lives and fostering compassionate coexistence between people and canids.
Please support our need to raise $5000 so our teams can continue our coexistence programs; and conduct field investigations and rescue work safely and efficiently. We are grateful for every gift - big or small! For the cost of a coffee, you can become one of our monthly donors. If you are not able to give this year you can still help in so many meaningful ways by sharing our social media and talking about Coyote Watch Canada's work on behalf of canids with family and friends. Much gratitude for thinking of us this year!
