Demand legal protection for Canada’s grizzly bears

Canada’s wilderness is one of the last global safe havens for grizzly bears, which are extinct or at risk of disappearing worldwide. But humans are threatening grizzlies’ ability to survive in Canada because of unsustainable hunting, poaching and the destruction of grizzly habitat due to industrial and recreational development.

We need strong legal protection for grizzly bears, and we need it before it’s too late.

The federal government has the ability and the responsibility to legally list and protect Canada’s at-risk grizzlies under the federal Species at Risk Act (SARA). We want our leaders to work with the western provinces and territories to create strong recovery and management plans that identify and protect critical grizzly habitat, especially for sub-populations that are about to disappear, such as in the B.C. Lower Mainland and the Canadian southern Rockies.

Join the thousands of people who are calling on the federal government to legally protect and recover grizzly bear populations in Canada under the Species at Risk Act (SARA).
