World Wildlife Day is March 3, and we at The Fur-Bearers have a short list of four ways you can make a quick but lasting impact for animals across Canada and in your community.
- Download our Beaver Coexistence Book! Beavers: Coexistence Strategies for Municipalities and Landowners is a 24-page booklet and overview of the important role beavers play in ecosystems, how municipalities and landowners can utilize in-field solutions to protect infrastructure and an extensive list of scientific references provided by UBC Janice Wong. As the theme for World Wildlife Day is key species for ecosystem recovery, beavers (a keystone species for wetlands) are a perfect animal to read about and protect in your community!
- Call for an end to British Columbia’s wolf cull! The BC government is continuing the inherently inhumane aerial gunning of wolves, despite clear opposition and a demand for non-lethal solutions to caribou population decline. Take action by contacting your MLA to express your concerns about the wolf cull. Residents outside of BC can send an email to the premier’s office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Become a Defender! Monthly donations from supporters like you are essential to solution-oriented organizations like The Fur-Bearers. Our successful educational campaigns and long-term advocacy strategies rely on monthly giving. To get started as a monthly donor click here. The best part? You get a charitable tax receipt for each monthly donation (at year’s end)!
- Reach out and connect. Most communities have a nearby naturalist club, wildlife rehabilitator or other environmental group doing on-the-ground work. Look them up in Google or at your local library to find out what they’re up to and how you can participate in helping local wildlife.
