The trophy hunting of at-risk grizzly bears is a controversial topic in Canada. It is part of the Canadian cultural inheritance. Hunting grizzly bears are considered to be a legitimate recreational activity in some parts of Canada. They inhabit in the forest and near the costal line. The numbers of bear reached tens of thousands before, but because they are fierce and threatening human beings, they are being hunted and killed. Also, the low mortality rate of grizzly means low population, but they play a critical role as a predator in the ecosystem. The problem is over-hunting and industrialization will cause extinction of this rare species, and lead to disharmony between the government and First Nations. I mainly support the ban of grizzly

Lost species affect the environment negatively and can disrupt ecosystems. Since the 1940s, many conservation efforts have been successful in helping the whooping crane population increase. By failing to ensure that whooping crane habitats have enough food in their winter habitat, the positive effects of conservation have been set back. The State of Texas breached the Migratory Bird Treaty and is liable for the deaths of whooping cranes. Given the outcome of the lawsuit, this situation could happen again in the future. As Canadian citizens, it’s extremely difficult to impact foreign legal decisions, but we can lobby our own government and legislators to encourage more participation in future international issues like this. We can also work with environmental organizations to work towards common goals for the benefit of the environment. We know that habitats must be properly protected and maintained by all parties involved to help not only the whooping crane, but other species as well, recover their population and thrive. Even just on our own as concerned citizens, we can raise awareness about the whooping crane. Although it might not seem like much, the effort that citizens put in can make a huge difference in the health of our endangered
A Need For A Northern MNR Fish and wildlife in Northern Ontario is facing a crisis created by years of mismanagement and hidden agendas of politicians who have little or no clue how to manage this Northern resource. Too often politicians have use this Ministry to win over voters in the large urban centres by making policies that are considered green and trendy.
Orientation Assignment to Prepare for Lichen IBET Field Trips Mason Neck Park and Mason Neck Wildlife Refuge, officially known as Mason Neck State Park and Elizabeth Hartwell Mason Neck respectively, are home to a multitude of species, such as the bald eagle, the Virginia pine tree, and the white-tailed deer (“Elizabeth Hartwell Mason Neck,” 2016; “Mason Neck State Park,” 2016). Critical to the conservation of endangered species, Mason Neck Wildlife Refuge, run by the National Wildlife Refuge System, a part of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, provides a safe habitat for the various organisms (“Elizabeth Hartwell Mason Neck,” 2016). On the other hand, the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation, the governmental agency responsible for Mason Neck Park, keeps human’s recreational needs in mind and provides activities such as canoeing and fishing (“Mason Neck State Park,” 2016). The human interference present within the Mason Neck Park may impact the local ecosystem (“Mason Neck State Park,” 2016). Although there are activities available in Mason Neck Wildlife Refuge, they are “wildlife-oriented recreational developments” meaning the well being of organisms living in the Refuge will be the first priority (“Elizabeth Hartwell Mason

Recently, Vancouver Park Board (VPB) passed a motion to ban the use of cetaceans for entertainment or research purposes. This motion has lead to a heated debate among animal right supporters and others who believe the ban was too harsh. Some supporters of the ban use Tom Regan’s view, a philosopher who adopts the abolitionist view of animal rights, to argue that the motion is justified. Others who favour against the ban believe that the Vancouver Aquarium is an organization that helps cetaceans by research and educating the audience. In this paper, I will examine closely and proof that the supporters of the ban who adopt Regan’s stance of not viewing animals as resources and treat them with respect is not suitable as I believe Vancouver Aquarium keeps cetaceans to lead them to a greater good.
Under the Act, the roles of science and government policy are separate. The Com-mittee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC) is responsible for determining which species are at risk and the Federal Government is responsible for offi-cially listing species at risk. As of 2013, there are 676 species listed
This paper is a written evaluation of three websites that were designed to reach a specific target audience. All three sites' reach their target audience, however they accomplish this in a slightly different way. During this paper, we will discuss the strength and weaknesses of each site, the design criteria used to evaluate them, and how to improve some of the weaknesses associated with each site.
The Canada Lynx, with its characteristic silver-brown coat and tuffed ears, is coming face to face with the threat of extinction – at least in the woods of Maine. The population of this North American mammal, which can be found in Canada, Alaska and some parts of Northern U.S., is quickly declining due to environmental changes taking place in their habitat. In an effort to fight back, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is teaming up with private landowners to recreate the habitat the Canada Lynx needs to hunt and prosper.
