Our court date to argue the case against the illegality of the B.C. wolf cull is fast approaching on July 7th & 8th
There are over 1,000 hours of research and legal strategy invested into this action. It’s your support that has made this happen, and it’s your support that helps us continue to campaign for the protection of all wolves in B.C.
Your support goes towards...
Seven years later, hundreds of wolves are still being killed each year through an unlawful aerial cull. While the upcoming judicial hearing challenges the legality of the ongoing wolf cull, we are also working to support science-based solutions that protect endangered mountain caribou herds without scapegoating wolves. This means supporting ecosystem-based methods that minimize predation of caribou, as well as advocating for protection of the old-growth forest habitat that caribou require for their survival.
We have joined the call from the Takaya’s Legacy Project for a moratorium on recreational wolf hunting and trapping in British Columbia. Currently there is no limit to the number of wolves that can be hunted in most of the province, and there is no mandatory inspection of reporting of wolves that is required by hunters. This means that there is no reliable data on the total number of wolves killed each year.
Archaic wildlife management approaches need to change to a modern, science-backed approach that places ecosystem health and biodiversity preservation ahead of prioritizing industry, hunters and guide outfitters. The voices of non-profits like Pacific Wild, representing hundreds of thousands of people just like you, and independent scientists, need to be a part of this planning for a durable solution.
Your support powers Pacific Wild’s proven production of high quality, persuasive content that broadens public outreach and puts pressure on the B.C. government to move away from archaic wildlife management processes and into an ecosystem-based, science-backed approach that will #SaveBCwolves.
