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.

For 25 years, Raincoast has been furthering biodiversity conservation in BC. Thanks to your generous donations, among many other accomplishments, we have been able to end commercial trophy hunting of large carnivores in over 38,000 square kilometers of the Great Bear Rainforest, begin acquiring forest land in order to protect threatened Coastal Douglas-fir ecosystems, aid recovery of endangered Southern Resident killer whales by restoring Chinook salmon habitat, and establish a university research lab dedicated to applied conservation science. Strong partnerships are integral to our success.
Our efforts need to be maintained and advanced, now more than ever. As the biodiversity and climate crises collide, your support allows us to continue to make tangible conservation gains.
