BC's Vanishing Wildlife

BC's Vanishing Wildlife r1 ...

Hi Paov,

With so many of us hunkered down indoors, I’ve been imagining what the forests have been like. Are bird songs lounder? Are wildlife more active? With the re-opening of BC’s parks, I have been pondering how to safely and quietly observe local wilderness spaces. I’m not going to lie, I can’t wait til the day when I can wake up in my tent to the sound of those birds.

Along with this re-opening however, comes the growing concern that returning to “business as usual” means the threats to endangered species in BC will continue, without standalone BC species legislation.

Surprised to hear we still don’t have a BC law to protect endangered wildlife? Me too. This province has more biodiversity than any other province or territory in Canada, yet the highest number of species at risk. The NDP government promised a species at risk law in their first mandate. But now they’re breaking that promise.

We were so close to getting a law — and we still can. Our new educational report BC’s Vanishing Wildlife provides the motivation, as it illustrates how every week, month and year that goes by without a species at risk law leaves wildlife vulnerable to industry and other destructive activities.

Read the report! The time to act is now. Please read the report and contact Premier John Horgan and demand he keep his campaign promise — by enacting a species at risk law in 2021 using the information on the back page.

Together, we can save biodiversity in British Columbia and put a stop to vanishing wildlife. P.S. Your donation today powers critical species protection. If you haven’t already, a gift of any size strengthens our work to build the pressure needed to get this legislation in place for BC’s endangered species and their habitats. r0.
