Until October 31, 2015, the BC government is accepting feedback on the framework for the “South Okanagan” region – and this could be a significantly protected chunk of land.
This area, full of rolling grasslands, sagebrush and sweetly scented ponderosa pine, is one of the most endangered ecosystems in all of Canada,” Wilderness Committee wrote in a blog. “Badgers, bobolinks, big horn sheep, rattlesnakes and sage thrashers all call this arid landscape home, and one-third of BC’s species at risk can be found here.”
It is well-known that the easiest way to protect animals of all species – including those at risk, and those fur-bearers listed in our mandate – is to protect their habitat. This is an opportunity to show the government of BC you believe in that concept and want the South Okanagan and all of its inhabitants to be protected.

Work like our growing Living With Wildlife campaign is only possible with the support of monthly donors. Please consider become a monthly donor – for as little as $5 a month – and help us create a Canada that is truly fur-free.
