Sierra Club Chinook Group Meeting - Action Grizzly Bear

January 8, 2009 - 2:00am

Our first regular public meeting of 2009 will feature Sierra Club Canada’s Action Grizzly Bear Campaigner Carl Morrison. Based in Calgary, Carl has always had a keen interest in wildlife and conservation and after completing his marketing degree he went to work as a field tech on various wildlife research studies around Alberta including the Trans-Canada Highway Bear DNA study in Banff National Park.

Alberta is on the receding edge of grizzly bear range in North America. With fewer than 500 remaining in the province, how we act today will determine if grizzlies remain a part of Alberta’s landscape in the future. This is why Action Grizzly Bear is so important. The presentation will discuss the general situation of Alberta’s threatened grizzly bear and what’s needed to ensure they are not lost. It will take a brief look at biology, threats and most importantly, what the public can do to help. The Chinook Group holds a free, monthly public meeting at 7 pm on the first Wednesday of each month at the Calgary Area Outdoor Council building (1111 Memorial Drive NW).
