EP 64: Wildlife & Habitat Engagement
On Episode 64, Kelly mentioned the opportunity to engage with the B.C Provincial Government to express your concerns and to share your ideas. You can do so from this link: https://engage.gov.bc.ca/wildlifeandhabitat/
"Share your knowledge and ideas to help create a new wildlife and habitat conservation strategy for B.C.
B.C.’s diversity of wildlife provides many environmental, cultural, social, and economic benefits to all British Columbians.
The purpose of this engagement is to open a discussion among Indigenous peoples, rural communities, wildlife organizations, natural resource development industry stakeholders, and the public so together we can identify ideas on ways to improve the way we manage wildlife and their habitat.
The Province seeks a better understanding of the challenges facing wildlife management and habitat conservation, and ways to explore opportunities for developing more effective management tools.
The Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development is looking for thoughts and feedback on:
- The engagement approach and how you would like to be involved in the future;
- Questions posed in the challenges section;
- Issues or concerns you think we should be aware of;
- Ideas or solutions you or your organization wishes to share;
- Anything you wish to share on the topic of how wildlife management and habitat conservation can be improved in B.C.
Join the discussion on challenges and opportunities below. Submit your feedback by July 31, 2018 at 4:00 p.m.
The Province is using this online discussion tool to seek a better understanding of the challenges facing wildlife management and habitat conservation, and ways to explore opportunities for developing more effective management tools.
There are a series of challenges currently facing wildlife management and habitat conservation in British Columbia that are posted to this site. All of the challenges have been determined through discussions with Indigenous peoples, rural communities, wildlife and habitat organizations, natural resource development industry stakeholders and the public over the last number of years. This list is by no means exhaustive and is provided as a starting point for sharing your thoughts. Each Challenge includes “Our Opportunities” and then a question for you to comment on."
