Please sign the following petition
Thank you for visiting the BC Wildlife Federation petition page. This petition is now closed for presentation in the Legislature on Monday, March 02, 2015. The BCWF would like to thank everyone who took the time to sign this petition. We encourage you to continue to bring the important issue of fair and equitable wildlife allocation to the attention of the provincial government.
Petition calling on the BC government to overturn the decision to change the Wildlife Harvest Allocation Policy which gives a larger share of hunting permits to BC guide outfitters and a smaller share of hunting permits to BC resident hunters.
On December 10, 2014, the Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations released the Province's updated Wildlife Harvest Allocation Policy. The new policy reduced the number of hunting permits available to BC resident hunters and increased the number of hunting permits available to Guide Outfitters Association of BC members, who primarily guide non-resident trophy hunters.
The BC Wildlife Federation believes that the provincial government should rescind its recently announced changes to the Wildlife Harvest Allocation Policy, so that foreign trophy hunters are limited to the harvest levels specified in the 2007 Wildlife Allocation Policy to ensure British Columbians have adequate access to this valuable wildlife resource.
