Wildlife

In B.C.’s great wilderness, grizzlies teach their young to catch salmon, caribou roam majestically, and burrowing owls fly freely in the night sky. An incredible opportunity exists to protect BC wildlife by protecting their homes.

Grizzly Bears
Grizzly Bears
Grizzly bears are a majestic icon of BC’s wilderness. Yet in the southwest corner of the province, this species is declining at an alarming rate due to habitat loss and human-caused deaths. Grizzly bears are at a crossroad in southwest British Columbia, but we have the opportunity to preserve this species and its habitat before it is too late.
Caribou

In northeast B.C., boreal caribou are in dire straits. These animals try to survive in a forest heavily fragmented by oil and gas and countless roads. So how do you save one of B.C.’s most threatened caribou?

On the southern edge of the Liard River plain pointing north, a mountain range stands alone rising from the plateau. Caribou rely on its rich and expansive open slopes above the treeline. Mountain sheep and goats live in its steeper climbs. Moose command the wetlands below, near lakes with evocative names like Looncry and Deadwood.

The Boreal forest is home to billions of migratory songbirds, and the Rockies are home to some of the last large mammal populations in North America. CPAWS-BC focuses on protecting large tracts of land and oceans so Canada’s iconic wildlife can thrive.
