Banff trying to help ESL visitors with wildlife rules As Parks Canada works to attract more new Canadians and international visitors, officials in Banff National Park are trying to figure out the best ways to help them understand the rules needed to protect wildlife.
Dozens of campers kate spade factory outlet products in the country's busiest national park were charged last summer with feeding wildlife or leaving messy campsites, as resource conservation officers worked around the clock to deal with a troubled wolf pack. Some of the campers charged in the incidents have since pleaded guilty in court, noting they either didn't know there was a wolf warning in effect, didn't understand what it meant or didn't speak English. Officials with kate spade news Banff National Park said they will spend this winter honing their wildlife message to reach that target audience. "Our visitation is representative of the changing face of Canada," said Judy Glowinski, external relations manager with Banff National Park. "We need to figure out the best way to reach folks who have English as a second language. "We need to make sure what we do is effective and that we try different means to reach them that are relevant to them." A local conservation group suggested their efforts should include better information in various languages at the park entry gates. "I just renewed my parks pass," said Colleen Campbell, past president of the Bow Valley Naturalists. "I asked for the literature at the gate. It's feeble. It's kate spade purses canada superficial. There's nothing substantial there. "If we wanted to do it properly, you would get some sort of booklet that you wouldn't feel compelled to throw away." All of Parks Canada's publications are provided in English and French, but Glowinski said they have also tried providing some pamphlets, including one called Living with Wildlife, in other languages as well. "There wasn't a huge demand for it at that time," she said. "Now we need to look at what is the best way to reach these folks? We do use plain language and icons in a lot of the materials that we have. "For instance, this summer, we tested a mini campaign the 'Do Not kate spade outlet melbourne Feed Any Wildlife' campaign. We used icons. a hand feeding a wolf with a cross through it." In addition, Glowinski said they put the message up on the electronic sign at the east gates, handed out flyers at campgrounds and left them at people's doors. They also put the message out on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter. Glowinski said they recognize that the messages need to be effective with their audience. "When you have diverse cultures, we want to make sure our tactics take into account their unique needs and expectations," she said, noting they will continue to try different ways of reaching out to both new Canadians and international visitors. Campbell said putting up signs or handing out flyers asking people not to feed the wildlife isn't good enough. "It's got to be Chinese and Korean and Japanese and all of the European languages," she suggested. "People in the campgrounds have to be armed with literature in those languages so they know coming in. "If we don't get the word out properly, we're going to be doomed." In addition, she suggested there needs to be additional staff to deal with an influx in visitors in Banff National Park.
"There are not enough people dedicated to monitoring and policing and communicating what has to happen when you are in the park," said Campbell.
