Why is CWS not protecting cranes?

Why is CWS not protecting cranes?

Editor: I read Renée Francoeur’s article, “Fort Smith man stands on guard for whooping cranes.” The article mentions “‘Almost every long weekend there are people out quadding in this nesting area at Foxholes. . .On the May long weekend, a big group was headed right for the nest and if I hadn’t been here to stop them, they’d most likely have run right over it…There’s this perception, you can go quad anywhere. You can’t. This is a restricted area.’”

My question is: With the area being a restricted area, what is the Canadian Wildlife Service doing to enforce any rules for quadders to keep out or educating the public the importance of this area?

Thank you!
