A Review of the Swift Fox Conservation Society's Activities in Canada: Role of a Non-Government Organization


George Stuetz, Laurie McGivern, and Lori Wilson. The Swift Fox Conservation Society, PO box 46026, Calgary, AB T6G 5H7.

The Swift Fox Conservation Society, founded in 1986, was established to promote the reintroduction and subsequent conservation of the swift fox in Canada. Over the past twelve years the society has committed itself to focusing its activities in the areas of education, research, reintroduction support, and fund-raising. The educational commitment has taken the form of providing classroom lectures, mall-show displays, and funding and developing educational materials. This year (1998) will see the launching of the society's website at www.swiftfox.org. In terms of research the society has provided funding to doctoral and masters students, sponsored the funded society-led field research, and participated in and funded multi-stakeholder research. Reintroduction support has taken the form of funding reintroduction activities and the provision of volunteers. Fund-raising through donations, membership sales, our Adopt-A-Fox program, and casinos have helped pay for these activities.
