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.
