Comments Off on BCWF Conservation App and Website
Available to iPhone users, the new Conservation App makes it easy for users to take geo-referenced, time-stamped photos or videos and to report issues related to illegal use, or abuse, of natural resources. The app works both in and out of service areas using the phone’s GPS. Reports are sent to a secure server and then forwarded automatically to the appropriate enforcement agency. An Android version of the app will be available next year.

Comments Off on Experts’ Report on Grizzly Bear Management in BC
The authors of the Scientific Review of Grizzly Bear Harvest Management System in B.C. found that the Province has a high level of rigour and adequate safeguards in place to ensure the long-term stability of grizzly populations. The report was prepared by a panel of three respected wildlife biologists, one two from the University of Alberta and one from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, all leaders in the field of grizzly bear research and conservation.
The report includes 51 recommendations aimed at enhancing habitat protection, population inventory, access and harvest management, and increasing public consultation. Wildlife staff are updating the grizzly bear harvest management procedure to address some of the recommendations, while others require additional analysis.
