Tools of Persuasion
When the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS) needed an effective lobbying tool to support its efforts in expanding the proposed boundaries of a new National Park in the Manitoba Lowlands, Circle rose to the challenge.
Naturalists and outdoor photographers provided images of “natural jewels” in the 600 square km that would be jeopardized if park boundaries would not be expanded as proposed—limited production of original photographic prints were accompanied by maps and descriptive narratives, all contained in cloth-bound wooden portolio cases featuring foil stamping on the cover. Completed portfolios were hand-delivered to the Canadian Prime Minister, several Premiers, and influential CEOs of resource-based corporations with business interests in the proximity of the proposed park boundaries (mining and forestry giants). The result: a highly effective lobbying tool that helped bring about expanded park boundaries.
