Take Action!! ‘Control kills’ of grizzlies out of control.

Roberta grizz thumbnailBella Coola grizzly bears need your voice.  Send a letter to Environment Minister Barry Penner.

A disturbing number of grizzly bears are being shot as ‘control kills’ in BC’s Bella Coola valley.  Most of these kills are as a result of humans who don’t secure bear attractants.  Despite this, virtually no enforcement action is being taken  against individuals responsible for the needless deaths of these bears.

Raincoast is calling on the BC government to reform the Wildlife Act so that  provisions addressing bear attractants are more stringent and enforceable.  We are also calling on the government to provide sufficient funding for Bear Smart/Bear Aware education in the Bella Coola valley.  More details are in the letter.

Go below to send a letter to Environment Minister Barry Penner, to express your concerns about their approach to grizzly bear management.
