Wildlife cannot live in a vacuum. Wild animals need the right habitat, with the right conditions, for survival. Right now in BC, wildlife numbers are plummeting and entire ecosystems are unraveling. Clearly, we need a change. The provincial government has drafted a plan to support wildlife, but the plan does not include enough to allow our wildlife to thrive.
The plan needs to include a population and habitat inventory, hunting regulations based on current data, stand-alone legislation for wildlife and habitat protections, priority given to enforcement and education, and funding for long-term conservation and habitat investments. Read more about the plan here.
Write a message to Forests Minister Doug Donaldson today, asking for:
- Stand-alone legislation that guarantees the conservation of biodiversity values
- Wildlife population objectives and legislated habitat objectives
- An investment fund supported by all users for conservation and habitat restoration
Make sure your voice is heard, please write a message in your own words.
