Alberta’s Plan for Parks Veers Off Track

Alberta, Canada — The province's protected area watchdogs strongly support the Alberta Government's resolve to write and implement a new and much-needed parks policy in time for regional land-use planning. However, they are sounding the alarm because the current draft of Alberta's Plan for Parks does a poor job of accommodating what the majority of Albertans say they want for parks.

Action Grizzly Bear Launched

Alberta Asked to Commit to Recovery and the Dollars Required

Media Release : Wednesday Nov 19th

Calgary: Today, local, national and international conservation organizations have launched "Action Grizzly Bear." Based out of Alberta, which for many years has been on the receding edge of grizzly bear numbers and range in North America, the new collaborative campaign is focused on achieving Alberta and Canadian government action on grizzly bear recovery at a level comparable to what has been ongoing in the United States for more than a decade with positive results. It provides citizens with a vehicle to have their voices heard on behalf of the fewer than 500 grizzly bears remaining in Alberta; a number sharply down from the 1,000 the province committed to retaining habitat for in 1984.
