Four new ambassadors joined the Swim Drink Fish family in April at our Swim Drink Fish Gala Vancouver 2018. The “Swim Drink Fish Ambassadors” were formally recognized and welcomed to the circle by one of our previous ambassadors, Jennifer Baichwal. We are grateful for their work and dedication to our natural world and we are excited to celebrate them.
The 2018 Swim Drink Fish Ambassadors include:
Dr. Wade Davis
Gail Percy Davis
Dr. David Suzuki
With this addition, our movement benefits from a fantastic group of 25 ambassadors across Canada. These water leaders promote water literacy and watershed awareness, kick-start education and protection programs in their areas, and connect ordinary Canadians to the Swim Drink Fish community.
Our work is made possible by the growing number of Swim Drink Fish community members, a network of Canadians who are taking steps to protect their local waterbodies. Community members actively use their watersheds, promote water literacy, report threats to swimmable, drinkable, fishable water, host community events, participate in decision-making. and volunteer their time. Any individual who does all of these things is a Swim Drink Fish Leader.
With growing enthusiasm for the vision of a Canada where everyone can safely swim, drink, and fish, it’s time to recognize spokespeople from different regions and different backgrounds who are helping to build the community.
