National Wildlife Week (NWW) was established in Canada to commemorate the achievements and contributions of Jack Miner, a conservationist often called the “father of North American conservationism.” “Wild Goose Jack,” as he was often referred, was one of the first conservationists to determine the migratory paths of North American birds. In 1947, Canada’s National Wildlife Week Act passed unanimously in Parliament to be observed annually during the week of Jack Miner’s birth, April 10 each year.
