“We know that there are scientifically-backed solutions to protect the province’s endangered caribou herds, but killing wolves isn’t one of them,” says Kelsey Bareham, owner of The Whistler Tattoo Company. “That’s why it’s important to us to get the word out about the plight of the wolves, who are being killed by inhumane snares and aerial gunning.”
Until February 28, 2017, tattoos of wolves and caribou will be offered at a discount at The Whistler Tattoo Company, and proceeds from these tattoos will go to The Fur-Bearers! Each artist at the shop is creating their own “flash sheet” of tattoo designs for those who want to show their love of wildlife with a piece of unique, lifelong art.
“Caribou populations are at risk, but it isn’t from wolves, it’s from habitat loss and fragmentation,” Bareham adds. “It’s vital that the public know the truth about the misinformation the government is spreading so they can speak out against it. We love wildlife here in Whistler, and at The Whistler Tattoo Company, we’re ready to show just how much the animals mean to us.”
The Whistler Tattoo Company is located at 234 – 4370 Lorimer Rd. Whistler. Walk-ins welcome, and appointments can be made by calling 604-932-0572, or visiting www.whistlertattoocompany.com.
