Raincoast executive director discusses the new grizzly bear hunting ban policy announcement

Chris Genovali joins Janice & Cory on Roundhouse Radio.

Chris Genovali: let's rethink wildlife management.

On Wednesday, August 16th, Chris Genovali joined Janice & Cory of Roundhouse Radio to talk about the NDP announcement to ban grizzly bear hunting in the Great Bear Rainforest.

In this interview, Janice & Cory focus on aspects of the policy as it relates to the rest of BC, and they have a lot of good questions about “food hunt” issues and how that will be handled in the rest of the province. Genovali explains the good and the not so good in the proposed policies and also speaks to some of the fundamental problems in contemporary wildlife “management”.

“The contemporary wildlife ‘management’ perspective draws its support from — and sustains — the view that humans exist outside of nature, and that other species, apart from their utility for humans, are of little importance in the larger scheme of things. Human dominion and domination over nature are deemed to be the natural order.” – Chris Genovali

This is a great interview and we hope you take fifteen minutes to listen.
