Tell the BC government to protect nature
British Columbia is the most biologically diverse province in Canada, so the impact of the extinction crisis is felt deeply. Right now, 512 animal species are marked as at-risk including the grizzly bear and Northern spotted owl.
For their sake—we don’t have time to wait. We’re asking the BC government to work together with the federal government to protect 30% of Canada’s lands and waters by 2030.
This December, Canada will host the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity’s Conference of the Parties. With thousands of global delegates arriving, we have a chance to say to the world that Canada will step up and commit to stopping, and even reversing, biodiversity loss.
Send a tweet to the BC government and tell them you want to see them work together to protect nature for all at-risk species.
Reaching 30% through Indigenous-led conservation
Indigenous-led conversation projects are one of the best ways to ensure our 30% target is met. For example, the Kaska Dena plan to protect an area larger than Vancouver Island. Known as Dene Kʼéh Kusān, this would be nearly 4 million hectares (or 4% of BC’s landbase) of new protected land abundant with wildlife.
This is especially important to shelter caribou, a species struggling to feed itself and breed in other parts of the province.
Do you know who's hibernating this winter?
512 animal species in BC are at risk of disappearing forever. Some of those are just starting to hibernate for the winter. Imagine if by the time they woke up in the spring, we could tell them their home was safe and protected.
All creatures, hibernating and not, are why we’re on a mission to protect 30% by 2030. Want to test your knowledge of BC’s hibernating creatures?
