February's campaign feature is Pacific Wild's valiant efforts to save British Columbia's Wolves' lives from being taken away.
Pacific Wild Alliance a B.C. non-profit organization committed to defending wildlife and their habitat in Canada. We work with a diverse array of communities, First Nations, groups and individuals to ensure that biodiversity protection is at the forefront of land and marine use decisions.
Why save wolves? I may not be a wildlife biologist but I firmly believe that we ought to share land with the animals we live alongside, I do not live in Canada and I may not understand what it is like to live among wild animal such wolves, caribou and the like but I don't believe it is fair to damage the ecosystem. Pacific Wild offers insight into why caribou numbers be be dwindling and it has less to do with wolves:
"Decades of habitat destruction and human encroachment have left B.C.’s woodland caribou in serious decline. But instead of protecting critical habitat, such as lichen-rich high elevation forests, the B.C. government turned a deaf ear to scientific warnings and allowed logging, industrial exploration and other kinds of human encroachment to take place. Now that the caribou are almost gone, they’ve decided to scapegoat wolves. These highly social and intelligent animals, icons of B.C.’s natural heritage, should not be killed because of long-term government negligence in regards to habitat protection."
