Support Pro Grizzly Bear Conservation In British Columbia

The British Columbia government banned grizzly bear hunting in 2017 for political election reasons. Grizzly bear hunting was sustainable and most grizzly populations are healthy and robust. Also, in 2017, BC’s Auditor General released its audit findings which stated hunting was not a threat to grizzly bear conservation and called on the BC government to update in grizzly bear management plan. Six years later the BC government has finally released an update to the its grizzly bear management plan.


The key elements missing from the plan are:

  1. Funding to hire grizzly bear scientists
  2. Objectives for grizzly bear populations
  3. Actions to protect grizzly habitat
  4. Funding to pay for population monitoring / research
  5. Reducing non-hunting human caused mortality
  6. Social interest in grizzly bear hunting
  7. Action to address First Nations across the province who are demanding the return of licensed grizzly bear hunting.
