This video by photographer John E. Marriott is only 8 minutes long and gives a first-hand account of grizzly hunt realities in B.C., from someone who knows the issue very well.
Taking action is easy:
1. Learn more about BC Grizzly Bears’ lives and the challenges that they face, click here
2. Talk to friends, neighbours and others that you meet about the importance of ending the grizzly trophy hunt. Surprisingly, many people are not even aware that killing Grizzly Bears in twice yearly hunts even happens in British Columbia. You can help spread awareness – this will make a difference.
3. Call your MLA – ask them where they stand on the grizzly hunts and let them know that this is a provincial issue that needs to end now!

THANK YOU CARD CAMPAIGN
During this transition time, we can be communicating with our political allies to keep the grizzly hunt top of mind. One way to do this is to send thank you or congratulations cards, by surface mail, to the NDP and Green leaders, plus to any MLAs with whom you feel connected.
A simple message could read:
Congratulations on working hard to form a government that serves British Columbians. I campaigned on your behalf and am excited for what is to come in our province. Top of mind are the upcoming grizzly hunts, which open August 15 2017 for the Fall and April 1 2018 for the Spring hunt.
You promised to end the grizzly hunts, a decision which the majority of British Columbians applaud. Please take immediate action on this promise.
With just the swipe of a pen, it is one of the easiest promises to keep!
