Spirit bears are a valuable symbol of the Great Bear Rainforest.

Protecting both spirit bear and black bear habitat is essential because black bears can carry the recessive spirit bear gene. Although Spirit Bears are protected from trophy hunting, black bears are not.⠀

To address this, we have already acquired the commercial trophy hunting rights in approximately 33,500 square kms of the Great Bear Rainforest. ⠀

We extinguish guided hunting when we purchase the tenures. Our ultimate goal is to secure the rights to all commercial trophy hunting tenures on the BC coast. We now stand poised to complete the job.
