The Wild Sheep Society of BC’s Wild Sheep Ambassador Partnership recognizes individuals in British Columbia’s wild sheep community that go above and beyond in supporting wild sheep conservation in British Columbia. It is no secret that the wild sheep population suffer from numerous challenges including habitat lost, predation, disease, and encroachment. Fortunately, as a Society we have a host of individuals that are conservation focused making a conscious decision to support wildlife and wild spaces. WSSBC’s Wild Sheep Ambassador Partnership recognizes this support and we have developed an important relationship with those that meet our criteria for participating in our program.
We have always had a strong following of wild sheep advocates that have supported our efforts. Of late, we have had individuals “step up” in our community and have taken volunteering to a higher level. The Wild Sheep Society of BC celebrates these environmentally conscious individuals and we have created the Wild Sheep Ambassador partnership to recognize their commitment.
What are the benefits of being a Wild Sheep Ambassador?
By earning the certification of Wild Sheep Ambassador an individual sets a high standard of environmental leadership within British Columbia’s wild sheep community. We continue to witness dedication in our wild sheep family that is unparalleled and we want to celebrate this commitment.
Becoming a Wild Sheep Ambassador earns the individual certain privileges and with it a level of conservation responsibility. Our Wild Sheep Ambassador’s will be celebrated and recognized for their dedication. They have earned a spot in our Society through their commitment to our vision and mission.
