An Ottawa woman is embarking on a 6,000-kilometre journey from Victoria to Halifax to help raise conservation awareness for the Canadian Wildlife Federation.

On Wednesday, Angella Goran kicked off her trek at the Robert Bateman Centre on Belleville Street in the Inner Harbour.

Goran hopes to encourage youth to get outdoors, connect to nature and lead active, healthy lifestyles.

She’ll be stopping at camps, schools and community events along the way to raise awareness for the CWF’s wildlife conservation programs. For more information, visit bikeforwildlife.ca.
