Grizzly Bear Conservation

/ 97.3 The Eagle

A report commissioned by a group dedicated to preserving grizzly bears is calling on the province to abolish the annual trophy hunt. The report says the hunt kills about 300 bears every year and is among several factors threatening the long-term survival of B-C’s grizzly population. The 88-page document, commissioned by the recently established Grizzly Bear Foundation, say other factors include a loss of habitat and a decline in food sources. It makes 19 recommendations aimed at protecting the bears, including improving childhood education to debunk myths about grizzlies and looking at expanding bear-watching tourism
