Get loud for grizzly bears in B.C.

Protecting B.C.’s grizzly bears means protecting the wild places you know and love. 

Almost a quarter of North America's remaining grizzly bears live in British Columbia — about 15,000 bears.  

In 2017, B.C.'s Auditor General made recommendations about the province’s grizzly bears in a detailed report. Today, we're still waiting for action. 

Sign your name to this petition and show your support for B.C.'s grizzly bears. Tell the B.C. government to get a grip on grizzly bear management before it’s too late.

Add your voice to our petition asking for immediate action to protect grizzly bear habitat: 

Honourable Ministers,

I want to see action taken today to keep grizzly bear habitat connected and protected in British Columbia.  

Grizzly bear populations are still healthy in many parts of the province, including areas of southeastern B.C.’s Columbia Basin (‘Upper Columbia’) region. This is great news! However, today we are still waiting for meaningful action from your government – almost four years after the 2017 grizzly bear management audit was released.  

These important measures must be taken to protect key grizzly bear habitat while management planning takes place: 

  • Protect areas that contain key food sources for grizzlies – in the Upper Columbia region, this includes seasonal closures where huckleberries grow abundantly and where humans have access, as well as closing some resource roads to ensure prime habitat is secure. 
  • Stop threats to grizzly bear habitat connectivity – enact a moratorium on any new commercial recreation tenures until planning is completed and new regulations are in place. 

Please take action for grizzly bears and our incredible wild places without delay. Prioritize the implementation of a new grizzly bear management plan – the bears of B.C. can’t afford to wait any longer.  

Sincerely, 

[your name]
