“What we need to manage is not wildlife but ourselves. Recognizing that many human activities have damaging effects on biodiversity and ecological communities, what should wildlife management in B.C. look like?

This is an extract from comments published in The Times Colonist by Raincoast’s Executive Director, Chris Genovali and Senior Scientist, Paul Pauquet.
