Banning the hunting of grizzly bears came after decades of campaigning. This was an incredible conservation achievement for British Columbia; as many First Nations, individuals, scientists, non-profit organizations and wildlife based tourism companies all came together to give grizzly bears a voice.
This is an opportunity to thank the government for listening, and to celebrate the incredible collaborations that took place to get there. Pacific Wild Alliance and the Grizzly Bear Foundation are honoured to celebrate this milestone with you.

Stay tuned for video updates as we continue to tell the stories of grizzly bear coexistence and survival over the next few weeks.
