Alberta takes important first step in grizzly conservation, but more work to be done

On Friday, March 3, the Alberta government announced it will suspend the spring grizzly bear hunt while DNA census data is collected throughout the province, which is expected to continue over the next few years. In addition to suspending the hunt, the government has committed to completing the population studies, reducing the number of human-bear conflicts through public education and regulations, and has requested the assistance of several widely-known grizzly experts to provide scientific peer review on the current draft grizzly bear recovery plan.

While the announcement is an excellent and commendable step towards sustainable grizzly bear management, there are several more important actions that need to be taken to ensure that grizzly bears, and a wide range of other species, are conserved on the Alberta landscape.

It is important that the government acknowledge the precarious position of the grizzly bear in Alberta and designate it as a 'threatened' species, begin immediately to deal with access management and ensure that key remaining habitat is not degraded.
