Raincoast submits comments on Province’s Wolf Management Plan

Raincoast carnivore scientists submitted comments today on BC’s Draft Wolf Management Plan.

Overall, this is a deeply flawed plan that contains many scientifically unsound and uninformed objectives. There is an exaggerated view of the impacts of wolves on both the livestock industry as well as hunting opportunities and a failure to consider the many ecological and economic benefits of having significant wolf populations in BC. The plan identifies conservation as important, but focuses exclusively on exploitation management and population control with little regard for conservation of wolves.

Support our mobile lab, Tracker!

Our new mobile lab will enable the Healthy Waters Program to deliver capacity, learning, and training to watershed-based communities. We need your support to convert the vehicle and equip it with lab instrumentation. This will allow us to deliver insight into pollutants of concern in local watersheds, and contribute to solution-oriented practices that protect and restore fish habitat.
