Musician Jaime Hall and wildlife biologist Nigel Jackett began their tour from Newfoundland in May, taking sponsorship pledges for the Ancient Forest Alliance as they progressed. Pledges were based on the number of bird species spotted by Jackett and Hall, and the couple spotted more than 300 species!

The pair managed to raise over $4000 for the Ancient Forest Alliance
by the end of their trip and we are extremely grateful and humbled by their incredible efforts!

The slideshow will feature the spectacular diversity of birds, wildlife, and ecosystems of Canada - from the Acadian forests of Nova Scotia to the Carolinian deciduous forests of southern Ontario to Grasslands National Park in Saskatchewan to the Okanagon Ponderosa pine forests in BC - and their cycling adventures!

We are happy give them the opportunity to share their stories and amazing experiences with our supporters and the public so please come out and show your support!
