Wolf Cull not the only solution
Why Sign A Petition… OR Write A Letter?
Do they really work? They can be a powerful tool to let our politicians know what is on the minds of the public. We believe that if you are passionate about something, and put energy and thought into how to improve a situation, that you really can affect change. And, yes, sometimes it takes years.
Stop wolf culls in British Columbia
The Raincoast Society have several action centres to stop wolf culls in British Columbia, and we are lending our support and contacts to this effort. Ultimately, we would like to see wolves protected through legislation that requires a license to hunt wolves, a bag limit, and a closed season for hunting and trapping wolves, and a buffer zone around parks.
We thank everyone who signed our petition. If you still have the ENERGY, we still need your HELP! (see below)
Write a letter or email to encourage the BC government to make the amendment
Here is the link to the website with all the information: http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/fw/wildlifeactreview/. Now would be a great time to be really proactive about the permitting changes that we need, as the rules are contained in the Act..
WHAT CAN YOU GET PASSIONATE ABOUT?
The city of Prince Rupert could take steps to kill the wolf pack living on Kaien Island and the outskirts of Port Edward, said a northwest conservation officer. But these would only be short term solutions and it would be much more effective to remove the attractants that bring wolves to the area in the first place.
Habituated wolves In Town
Wolves who are habituated (wolves who don’t fear man) to humans, should be dealt with before a problem arises. We also have coyotes in the area that could make things worse. People blaming the wolves when in fact it could have been coyotes. If you are unsure if you saw a wolf or a coyote remember a wolf will be larger then a coyote and coyotes have long ears and smaller paws.
