Stop the hunt!

Partial succes for Stop The Hunt

The new Provincial government in British Columbia has stopped the trophy hunting of grizzly bears after the fall 2017 hunt season. Unfortunatley while the Great Bear Rainforest, where Knight Inlet Lodge resides, is covered by the hunting ban not all of British Columbia is. There are also loopholes for "meat" hunting of grizzlies that needs to be eliminated. We will not stop until ALL grizzly bear hunitng is banned in all of British Columbia.

 Background to the "stop the hunt" campaign

In December 1999, 68 professional biologists submitted a strongly worded petition to government calling for a moratorium on all grizzly bear hunting pending completion of comprehensive population studies in the Province's six bioregions. The estimate by the Ministry of Environment that there are 10,000-13,000 grizzly bears in the province is highly questionable. Just twenty years ago the official estimate stood at 6,000 - 7,000. In a comprehensive scientific review of the province's Grizzly Bear Conservation Strategy, wildlife scientists Dr. Brian Horejsi, Dr. Barrie Gilbert and Dr. Lance Craighead stated that "Grizzly population estimates in BC have been consistently over-estimated."

As one of the planet's premier places to view wild grizzlies in their natural habitat, Knight Inlet Lodge is committed to stopping the trophy harvest of these special animals. As a founding member of the Commercial Bear Viewing Association of BC, we have proven that, beyond the important ethical arguments against trophy hunting, grizzly bears are worth far more to the province alive in the forest than as a hunter's prize.

 Most recently we have committed to a financial settlement with the local guide-outfitter to pay for his bear tags - i.e., paying them not to hunt.
