No haven

David Suzuki Foundation says B.C.’s bears aren’t safe in parks or protected areas.

“Most people think of these parks as big wildlife conservation areas,” Moola said. “They are envisioned as places where plants and animals are safe from human activity. What our research shows is that this perception is absolutely untrue.”

B.C. has taken steps to protect the grizzly habitat in some areas, including by banning certain resource-extraction activities in the Flathead Valley in southeastern B.C., said Moola, a scientist and adjunct professor at the University of Toronto.

But these measures are nearly useless without laws that prevent the bears themselves from being shot and killed, he argued.
