Petition for policy change for BC’s bears

In the last 10 days the BC Conservation Officer Service nearly caused the death of 2 black bear cubs from negligence. Black bear kills in 2019 were up 40% over 2018. Prevention and rehabilitation must be prioritized over killing to resolve human-wildlife conflict. We have launched a petition to the Chief Conservation Officer, Assistant Deputy Minister and Minister of Environment and Climate Change, and the Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations to demand policy change at the COS, as well as independent oversight so they are held accountable for their actions.

Thank you to Critter Care Wildlife Society for saving the lives of these orphaned cubs.
