5.0 out of 5 stars The Father of Conservation (since 1906) Dec 27 2007
By Teacher
I am a proud Canadian who is grateful for the environmental awareness and knowledge that the Jack Miner Bird Sanctuary (Kingsville, ON) brought to my heritage and upbringing. In 1943 King George VI presentied Jack Miner with the Order of the British Empire (OBE) "for the greatest achievement in conservation in the British Empire. In 1977, the Rt. Hon. Pierre Elliot Trudeau issued a proclamation for National Wildlife week saying: "Jack miner, with his vision and determination is largely responsible for those conservation measures in existence today."

Jack Miner pioneered the tagging of migratory waterfowl by banding his first wild duck. In 1915 the early data from tagging recoveries was instrumental in the Migratory Bird Treaty between the U.S.A. and Canada. This act placed the first restrictions on hunting giving consideration to waterfowl for the future. In 1929 he was awarded the Outdoor Life Gold Medal "for the greatest achievement in wildlife conservation on the continent. In this autobiography, it was very interesting to learn his processes for documenting and proving the regular habits of the migratory birds. I loved hearing the story behind his inspiration to advocate for the Canada Geese.

This is Jack Miner's Autobiography and it shares the inspiring scienctific work of this great Canadian. A great conservationist. A great naturalist. In 1906, The Minneapolis Journal was right to call him "The Father of Conservation."
