action alert!
Bears in the Great Bear Rainforest are becoming accustomed to ecotourist visitors and less cautious around humans. This makes the bears more vulnerable to hunters, but the government continues to issue hunting permits within the forest!

Dear Kimberley,

The Great Bear Rainforest has seen a recent boom in popularity as an ecotourist destination in British Columbia. Many people visit to observe how the resident bears live in their natural habitat. These bears are becoming accustomed to seeing curious and friendly humans. They’re losing their natural fear of humans, and hunters are taking advantage of their trust.

Hunters are purposefully targeting the forest for its abundance of unsuspecting bears to shoot. Despite this recipe for disaster, the government continues to grant hunting permits in the rainforest. This has to stop. The government should be protecting these bears, not licensing their slaughter.

Hunting is currently banned in half the Rainforest, but of course the bears can’t distinguish between areas where they’re safe and areas where they might be shot. The bears need a full hunting ban to be completely protected, and 87% of local residents support the idea.

It’s time to change the policy! Tell the B.C. government to ban bear hunting in the Great Bear Rainforest.
