BCWF Welcomes Grizzly Bear Management Recommendations


The BCWF welcomes the release of recommendations from the Scientific Review of Grizzly Bear Harvest Management System in British Columbia.The independent review commissioned by the Province concludes that hunting is not a threat to the sustainability of grizzly bears, but offered a number of suggestions to improve harvest management procedures, data collection and transparency of decisions related to hunting down to the Grizzly Bear Population Unit Level. 

In B.C., grizzly bears are listed as S3 (Vulnerable) by the Conservation Data Centre (www.env.gov.bc.ca/cdc). The  expert review commissioned by the province  noted  concerns  about  the naturally  low reproductive rates of grizzly bears, increasing pressures of resource extraction and cumulative impacts affecting the longer-term status of the species without adequate attention to conservation concerns.

The BCWF is encouraged that the Province has incorporated many of the review's recommendations into their planning and notes thatit is critically important to ensure adequate funding is in place for wildlife inventories, harvest monitoring, and other supporting services.
