Conservationists Expect Improved Support and Action For Caribou

Alberta Wilderness

Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society, Edmonton Chapter

News Release: February 9, 2005

The Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society, Edmonton Chapter (CPAWS) and
Alberta Wilderness Association (AWA) are becoming increasingly alarmed about
the future of caribou in Alberta. Lack of policy and commitment from
government and industry continues to jeopardize these endangered animals and
their habitat.

"There is a complete failure to address and manage industrial activity
within caribou ranges," says Lara Smandych, AWA Conservation Biologist. "The
decline of caribou in Alberta indicates that resource management is not
sustainable. If caribou are in trouble, it is likely other species are also
at risk. Immediate action is needed to improve their situation." Read More

Action Alert: February 8, 2005

The remaining 80 individual caribou of the Little Smoky herd are being
threatened by industrial development. Despite the numerous requests made by

ConocoPhillips to re-route their pipeline and defer activity within the home
range of the herd, pipeline construction is well underway, putting these
animals at risk. Your letters of concern are greatly needed to protect the
Little Smoky caribou herd from this industrial development. Read More

Alberta Government Fails Our Grizzly Bears Again

Alberta Wilderness

News Release: February 2, 2005

The Alberta government yesterday announced that it will go ahead with this
year's spring grizzly bear hunt, despite overwhelming scientific evidence
that Alberta's grizzlies are in serious trouble. Alberta Wilderness
Association (AWA) is one of a number of environmental organisations in
agreement with government scientists and committees who have consistently
recommended suspending the hunt.

"Scientists now agree that Alberta's grizzly bear population stands at
less than 700 bears," says AWA Conservation Specialist, Nigel Douglas. "The
government's own Grizzly Bear Recovery Team has called for a postponement to
the hunt. Its Endangered Species Conservation Committee has recommended
listing the grizzly as a "threatened" species which would lead to an
automatic suspension of the hunt. To continue to kill threatened grizzly
bears is obtuse in the extreme." Read More
