Rocky Mountain wonderland could get protection

Great news out of the G8 and G20 summits! President Barack Obama and Prime Minister Stephen Harper deliberated over B.C.'s precious Flathead Valley. Now, an international conservation agreement is in the works for the American and Canadian Flathead River watershed - a Rocky Mountain hotspot for animals that straddles the Montana-B.C. border.

The White House even issued a statement!

Looks like a deal is getting close. CPAWS needs to ensure that this deal provides the highest protection possible for B.C.'s Flathead Valley - home to the greatest density of inland grizzly bears in North America. And we also need to ensure that the upcoming agreement includes meaningful wilderness corridors.
