The Nature Trust Laments the Passing of Our Dear Friend Farley Mowat

May 7th, 2014
All of us at the Nature Trust are deeply saddened by the passing of our dear friend and long-time champion, Farley Mowat.


We were very sad to learn of the passing of a dear friend to the Nature Trust, Farley Mowat. Mowat was a passionate conservationist, an officer of the Order of Canada, and a world-renowned Canadian author. He has long been an outspoken advocate for preserving and caring for our natural world, and was a champion for and friend to the Nature Trust for many years. In 2007, he and his wife Claire Mowat donated Farley's Ark, their piece of Nova Scotian paradise, for the Nature Trust to preserve.

We are proud and moved to be part of the Farley Mowat's legacy of caring for nature, and we extend our sincere sympathies to his loved ones. Please click "more" below to read some of our reflections on Farley Mowat and the profound impact that he has had on us.
