The domestic dog and Grizzly Bear both are in the taxonomic order Carnivora, in the branch Caniforma (dog-like) families. All you dog lovers, help your pup's wild bear cousins!!

Vital Ground
Stop the Hunt in British Columbia.

Bear viewing is a sustainable economic model, based on healthy bear populations, The bear hunt is a trophy hunt -- Grizzly meat is not palatable, even First Nation sustenance hunters do not harvest Grizzly. Scientific uncertainty surrounds current bear population estimates. One sure way of avoiding overkill due to incorrect guesstimates is to Stop the Hunt!


Donate to buy up hunting rights. Raincoast has already purchased the rights to two large BC areas, to protect Grizzlys and it also holds the rights to the area where the Spirit bears are found, The organization is gearing up to buy rights to additional areas.
