  • Title: Pacific Wild - Wildlife Conservation on Canada's Pacific Coast - British Columbia - Conservation Priorities
    Descriptive info: Hunting of Grizzly Bears.. In 2007 a record 430 grizzly bears were killed in British Columbia, 363 of them by sport hunters.. This alarming statistic raises serious questions about government policy toward this iconic animal.. The science used to estimate grizzly populations, and therefore set harvest quotas, is weak.. Government grossly undervalues grizzly bear viewing as an economic generator while overestimating the importance of trophy hunting, revealing its bias toward the hunting sector.. As the.. recent opinion survey.. (commissioned by Pacific Wild) indicates, the general public is overwhelmingly in favor of banning the sport hunting of grizzlies.. In addition, given the grizzly s vast habitat requirements, the health of this species will be a measure of our ability to make sound landscape-based decisions around forestry, mining and other extractive industries.. Click here.. to learn more about why it s time to end the hunt and take grizzly bear conservation seriously.. Energy Development-Oil and Gas, Wind Farms, Hydro Projects.. An oil spill in the Great Bear Rainforest on the scale of the Exxon Valdez disaster is unthinkable and a recent public opinion poll commissioned by Pacific Wild and other environmental groups shows that a majority of British Columbians support a ban on tanker traffic in the province s inside waters.. Still both the federal and provincial governments are quietly supporting a push from big oil to turn these ecologically rich waters into part of an energy superhighway linking  ...   of these conservancies are comprised of low elevation rainforest, the rest is made up of high elevation rock and ice.. Given the inadequate level of protection for the coast, an Ecosystem Based Management (EBM) approach has been proposed for the 70% that remain unprotected.. EBM is meant to act as a surrogate for the lack of core protection being offered to the Great Bear.. Fish Farming in the Great Bear Rainforest.. Without wild Pacific salmon there would be no temperate rainforest the way we know it today.. Salmon are the very foundation upon which this rich and diverse ecosystem and its full suite of both marine and terrestrial species are based.. Industrial scale salmon aquaculture represents a direct threat to this natural balance millennia in the making.. Floating farms are vectors of disease and sea lice epidemics, which have already proven deadly to young pink salmon smolts in the Broughton Archipelago.. Massive escapes of exotic farmed species are common.. Chemical-laced fish waste pollutes the adjacent marine environment.. And by some estimates salmon aquaculture produce 1 kg of fish for every 4 or 5 kg of fish harvested to produce feed, resulting in what some people call an unethical protein transfer from developing world waters to first world restaurants, homes and supermarkets.. to learn more about why status quo fish farming is the wrong choice for British Columbia s west coast and the rivers of the Great Bear Rainforest..

  • Title: Pacific Wild - Wildlife Conservation on Canada's Pacific Coast - British Columbia - Our Projects
    Descriptive info: More than 20 years of concerted environmental effort has resulted in approximately 30% of the Great Bear Rainforest area being protected in various conservancy designations.. While this is a step forward in protecting B.. s endangered rainforest, significant gaps remain.. Trophy hunting of grizzly bears, wolves and other large carnivores remain sanctioned by the provincial government, even in many of the recently announced conservancy areas.. Clearcut logging of intact salmon supporting watersheds is still commonplace, and a lack of marine protected areas leave the coast exposed to open net cage salmon farms, and other abuses of the marine environment.. Year after year, the reality of collapsing salmon stocks - the foundation species for life on the coast - becomes more apparent.. Emerging threats from the energy sector, such as proposed hydroelectric and large-scale wind farm projects could have a major impact on the ecologically sensitive outer coastal islands and intact river valleys of the Great Bear.. On the oil and gas front, a 1,150 kilometre pipeline is proposed to run from the coastal town of Kitimat, in the heart of the Great Bear Rainforest, to the province of Alberta.. The twin pipeline would transport crude oil from the Alberta tar sands to the coast where it would be loaded in oil tankers for export to Asia.. Super tankers carrying condensate, a chemical used to liquefy crude oil for transport, imported through Kitimat  ...   to conservation.. We further this goal by working with media, educators and others to help draw attention to current environmental threats.. Please visit.. to catch up on archived media stories and events.. 2011 is an exciting year for Pacific Wild with an ongoing initiative to build an interactive web portal using non-invasive video techniques to showcase coastal ecology.. See.. to learn more.. Pacific Wild s field office is located on Denny Island, B.. , in Heiltsuk First Nation territory - the heart of the Great Bear Rainforest.. Having a full-time presence in the area means that we can better monitor and document any new developments.. We work with mariners, pilots, local community members and others for up-to-date monitoring of threats facing the land and seas of the Great Bear Rainforest.. Public presentations are also a big part of our program.. Pacific Wild's presentations have engaged audiences throughout Canada, the US and Europe.. Each year our images, video and other outreach material along with first hand explorations bring the story of the Great Bear Rainforest to schools, lecture halls and many other forums.. Locally, our field crews speak to passengers of charter boats, cruise ships and other vessels passing through the Great Bear Rainforest to enhance their understanding of current issues in the area..

  • Title: Pacific Wild - Wildlife Conservation on Canada's Pacific Coast - British Columbia - History
    Descriptive info: With a full-time presence in the heart of Canada's Great Bear Rainforest, Pacific Wild's founders Karen and Ian McAllister, have been involved in wilderness and wildlife protection in British Columbia for two decades.. Initially, in the late 1980s, they worked on the frontline campaigns to protect Vancouver Island s endangered rainforest.. In 1990, the two moved north to begin efforts to protect the central and north coast of B.. Their initial years of exploration of the endangered river valleys of the Great Bear Rainforest resulted in the writing of.. The Great Bear Rainforest.. , which is credited with sparking an international campaign to protect this area.. While  ...   logging destruction of B.. 's temperate rainforest while assisting with the development of a number of conservation proposals for the remaining intact river valleys of the Great Bear.. Other successful campaigns include publicizing British Columbia s shameful grizzly bear trophy hunting which led to the unprecedented purchase of a commercial trophy hunting license on the B.. central coast in 2005, and working to keep open net cage salmon farms from expanding into the pristine waters of the Great Bear.. Building on these successes, Pacific Wild is a conservation voice dedicated to ensuring that the Great Bear Rainforest remains one of the planet s greatest cradles of biodiversity..

    Descriptive info: Neu!! Für unsere deutschsprachigen Freunde übersetzen wir die Website nach und nach in die deutsche Sprache.. - National Geographic Magazine - Best Trips 2013.. Die fragile Wildnis der Küste Kanadas.. Manchmal kann man beides sehen, den Wald und die Bäume.. Der Great Bear Rainforest, des Planeten grösster noch intakter gemässigter Regenwald, ist ein Streifen Land ungebändigter Natur, welcher sich über 250 Meilen entlang der Küste British Columbias erstreckt und grosse Flächen an riesigenHemlocktannen, Sitka Fichten und roter Zeder beherbergt.. Diese mächtigen Bäume erheben sich über einem feuchten, farnbewachsenen Waldboden, welcher von Küstenwölfen, Nerzen, Kanadas grössten Grizzlybären und dem seltenen, weissen Kermode Spiritbären patrouilliert wird.. Diese Beschaulichkeit wird nun  ...   fördern.. Diese Projektierung würde zwei Ölpipelines zur Folge haben, welche einige der weltweit grössten Wassereinzugsgebiete für Lachse und ihre Brut zu überqueren hätten.. Zusätzlich dazu würde eine unablässige Prozession an Supertankern durch die schmalen Kanäle zwischen Inseln und Festland steuern.. Die lokal ansässigen Küstenindianer und verschiedene Umweltschutzgruppen sprechen sich vehement gegen dieses Projekt aus, mit der Befürchtung einer erneuten Ölkatastrophe ähnlich deren des Tankers Exxon Valdez.. Dies ist ein Wildschutzgebiet und dazu ein sehr spiritueller Ort , meint Ian McAllister, der Gründungsdirektor von Pacific Wild.. Die Ölpipelines würden diese Küste für immer grundlegend verändern.. Eine Entscheidung bezüglich der Ölpipelines wird sehr wahrscheinlich Ende 2013 getroffen.. Robert Earle Howells..

Pacific Wild s current focus area is on the northern portion of the Pacific coast of Canada, an area known as the Great Bear Rainforest.. Located between Bute Inlet to the south and the Alaskan panhandle to the north, this region contains a significant portion of the world s remaining intact temperate rainforest.. Historically, this forest type occupied less than 0.. 2% of the earth s land mass and remains one of the rarest forest types on the planet.. The rainforest on Canada's Pacific coast supports many threatened and globally  ...   other resource extraction proposals.. Many of the planet's large carnivores are threatened and declining in numbers and range due to habitat destruction, trophy hunting and poaching.. Trophy hunting of large carnivores, such as grizzly bears and wolves, is sanctioned by the British Columbia government, and currently no marine protected areas have been established.. Open net-cage salmon farms, seismic testing for oil and gas reserves and unsustainable fishing practices remain some of the immediate threats to the marine environment.. Internationally, scientists and conservationists continue to promote the protection of the last wild intact functioning ecosystems in an effort to safeguard biological diversity, ancient forest protection is increasingly supported in efforts to offset the impacts of global warming.. These last remnants of wilderness remain the planet s best opportunity to safeguard species diversity over time.. Large-scale and sustained opportunities for conservation of large carnivore species, such as grizzly bears and wolves, still exist on the north coast of British Columbia..

    Descriptive info: Pacific Wild s office is located in the heart of the Great Bear Rainforest, and a priority for us has always been to maintain a full time presence in the field.. Our staff and volunteers spend a large portion of their time in the remote fjords and river valleys allowing us to monitor wildlife, industrial and other activity in many of the remote areas of the coast.. Most of the coastal First Nations communities also have formal Guardian Watchmen or CoastWatch programs now, whose focus is to provide a regular patrol of their territories..
