2023: NEW Call to Action for Bears

Please visit our black bear advocacy page here. We have new data that shows the bear population is half what the Fish and Council claimed to get its “emergency” bear hunt. There are new talking points that you can use in your messages. The results of the black bear comment period are in. A whopping 83.7% of public comments received were opposed to the entire bear policy. Please visit our bear advocacy page and use the new data to help our beloved black bears.

Our 2023 billboard campaign kicks off soon. We are working on a new message, which will send a strong message against the bear hunt.
