Grizzly Bear Trophy Hunting Must End

Despite the objections of Coastal First Nations, and the majority of British Columbians, the provincial government is considering expanding areas where grizzly bears can be hunted.

A study conducted by the Centre for Responsible Tourism,  and funded by Tides Canada, concluded that bear watching ecotourism is more profitable than trophy hunting.

In a BC1, Global News interview on ‘Unfiltered’ hosted by Jill Krop, Andrew Weaver takes on the BC Outfitters Association over the economic, environmental and moral arguments of grizzly bear trophy hunting.

    Thank you Dr. Weaver! for really making sense regarding the insane trophy hunt of grizzly bears on BC’s coast. I am hopeful that trophy hunting will become endangered and then extinct in the very near future.
