B.C.'s wilderness
is everyone's business.

You can help ensure that B.C.’s wildlife and wilderness thrive for generations to come.

Here's a look at what we're advocating for:

1. Update B.C.'s Forest
Management Practices

Our current approach to forest and wildlife management has room for improvement. It was designed decades ago to handle the needs of a province that looked much different than it does today.

With economic, social, and environmental pressures, our forests are facing threats. Forest management must be brought up to date to reflect our current realities, technologies, and needs.

2. Set Clear Goals for Wildlife Populations

Wildlife is an integral part of B.C.’s ecosystem. Wildlife managers need a mandate to grow wildlife and need clear population objectives to help them get there.

They need the ability to manage all factors that impact wildlife populations, including: hunting regulations, predator management, access, environmental assessment and mitigation, and habitat protection.

3. Include Local & Traditional Knowledge

Integrate insights from local knowledge and Indigenous communities to make our conservation efforts more effective. 

“We’re facing some pretty challenging management questions right now. Things are very complicated – not based on science – mostly on emotion. One of the tools that we’re not really taking advantage of is using local knowledge from people that are on the land, seeing what’s happening, year after year.

– Krista Sittler, Wildlife Biologist in Northern B.C.

4. Recognize
Forest Values

Forests are more than just timber. Forest management policies must recognize the full value of our forests, from biodiversity to recreation to jobs and beyond.

5. Collaborate & Educate

The health of B.C.’s forests and wildlife affects us all. It’s essential that we come together, share perspectives, and seek solutions that benefit our shared home.

Who Cares BC is about putting down our differences to work together to achieve positive changes for wildlife. It is about collaboration, not entrenched positions.

The time to act is now.

"... we’ve seen a decline in moose populations by about 50-70% and when we ask biologists and managers what the reason for that is, the top reason that they cite is habitat degradation."
Roy Rea, PhD
Senior Laboratory Instructor of Forestry, University of Northern British Columbia
"Our forests face a ton of challenges nowadays, and we're not going to address those challenges by planting pines everywhere. Moose, deer, elk - they really depend on broadleaf tree species. That's the birch, the willows, the aspens. Unfortunately, that isn't really allowed under the existing laws. We need diversity in our forests... different tree species... to feed the moose, help stop forest fires, diversify our forests, and make them more resilient."
