Farley Mowat inspired a love of wildlife and Canada

It was with heavy hearts that we learned yesterday Canadian icon, author and environmentalist Farley Mowat had passed on.

Media reports have noted that Mowat, whose books had sold over 17,000,000 copies in several languages, died in his Port Hope home at the age of 92.

Born in Belleville on May 12, 1921, Mowat was also a friend and personal inspiration to George Clements, one of APFA’s long-time directors.

The books Mowat penned introduced millions of readers to the glory of the Canadian north, the vastly diverse wildlife of our country and the need to protect it.

While we are sad that Farley has passed, we are proud of what he accomplished and what he did for lovers of wildlife and the environment everywhere.

Please visit your local library this week and pick up one of his incredible stories of adventure to celebrate his life.
