Many people are shocked to find out that BC, along with Alberta, is one of only two provinces in Canada with no endangered species legislation to protect wildlife at risk, such as grizzly bears, Great Blue Herons, and rare desert plants. By taking action today - you can help change that.
The petition signatures will be forwarded to the leaders of all political parties in British Columbia. The thermometer reflects the total petition signatories to date, including paper petition signatures collected by caring citizens just like yourself!
If you want to collect petition signatures in your community, you can download the paper petition under the Resources section. Together we can make sure that BC remains the Best Place on Earth!
Whereas the lack of a law to protect endangered species in British Columbia leaves over 1900 species at risk without adequate legal protection;
Whereas British Columbia is one of only two provinces in Canada – the other being Alberta – without an endangered species law;
Whereas British Columbia is becoming a significant climate refuge for North American wildlife in the face of rapidly advancing global warming, that is already making life more difficult and uncertain for endangered species;
I urge the leaders of all political parties in British Columbia to support a stand-alone endangered species law that will:
• Protect the habitat of endangered species
• Be based on sound science
• Identify, protect and recover endangered species and ecosystems across BC
