    BCWF Letter writing campaign

    As our good friends in the Wild Sheep Society demonstrated, telling the government what we believe isn't too hard. One portion of BCWF's campaign is up and ready for primetime. Please go to the link and send the letter. We have a goal of 25,000 letters being sent, and we're at 883 as I write this, so we've got a bit of a climb.

    https://bcwf.bc.ca/initiatives/your-...rid=1875844326


    This is the text from that page if you want to read it, but even better, go to the link and send the letters in.

    Thanks!

    Your Right to Hunt Is at Risk

    Act Now

    Over the past month, the anti-hunting movement has attracted headlines across the province. Now that grizzly bear hunting is closed, anti-hunting organizations are looking to close black bear, cougar and wolf hunting across the province. We expect this movement will continue to sheep and goat hunting as well as catch-and-release fishing. Some in the anti-hunting movement have recently suggested all hunting should be closed.
    Hunters have historically been among the strongest advocates for wildlife. The North American Model of Wildlife Conservation, widely recognized as the most successful model, was created by hunters and depends on them for its success. The future of conservation and hunting in British Columbia is at risk.
    Recently, the BCWF has been in the media opposing the misinformed rhetoric villainizing hunters but more work needs to be done. The collection of interviews and articles can be found below.
    The B.C. Wildlife Federation is working with the Wild Sheep Society of BCand other organizations to take a stand and fight back against the anti-hunting movement and we need your help. Our plan is to deliver at least 25,000 letters to the B.C. legislature by June.

    Please stand up for what you believe in by completing the letter below to your MLA, the Premier, Minister of Forest Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development as well as the Minister of State for Lands and Natural Resource Operations to let our elected officials know how important conservation and hunting are in B.C. We also encourage you to meet with your MLA to explain who you are, why you care and why you hunt. Here are two videos to help you organize and conduct your first meeting.

    There’s a much stronger effect if you print and mail to your elected officials. That takes all of 3 minutes.

    The first 10% are in. 2520 letters! But with 40.000 BCWF members alone, a lot more should be feasible
