Tonight, Friday June 21, members of the Adventure Canada team will have the privilege of joining celebrated authors Margaret Atwood and Graeme Gibson at BirdLife International‘s
90th Anniversary Gala Celebration Dinner in Ottawa.
Ms. Atwood and Mr. Gibson are co-chairs of the event, and appropriately so. Their shared passion for our feathered friends is manifest in their tireless work in aid of awareness and conservation of avian species.
Adventure Canada is proud to sponsor the gala with an auction donation of two berths aboard our Newfoundland and Wild Labrador sailing next spring. And we are absolutely delighted to announce that Margaret Atwood and Graeme Gibson will join the lucky winners, and the rest of our guests, aboard that same sailing.
As special guests of Adventure Canada, the two authors will undoubtedly regale their fellow cruise passengers with stories collected during their careers amid Canada’s literati. As dedicated birders, they’ll also enjoy the opportunity to observe numerous seabird species, at a peak time of year for viewing.
Perhaps most importantly, these two beloved Canadian literary figures will have the chance to share their passion and concern for the plight of birds worldwide with their fellow passengers. We are proud to join them in their efforts—for the love of birds!
