Help Alberta's Bears

Canadian Parks and Wildlife Society (CPAWS) has a petition going to Premier Stelmach about protecting our Grizzly bears. Given that they are an umbrella species the fact that last year's census put the adult population at 500, approximately 1/2 of a healthy population, is a serious sign of the challenges facing our foothill and mountain ecosystems.

Sign the petition on the CPAWS website or write a letter to the Premier and your MLA today!

  1. Thanks for this post as I had no idea there were only 500 grizzlies left in Alberta. Sent off an edited copy of the letter to Premier Stelmach.
