Lost habitat

Valhalla Wilderness Society, Raincoast Conservation Society, and Animal Alliance write to Gordon Campbell.

In the letter sent Monday, 16 environmental groups state they are strongly opposed to the killing of wolves — as well as other carnivorous animals including cougars and bears — arguing such human activities as the logging of old-growth forests and snowmobiling are the main causes of mountain caribou population decline.

“These herds are small because they have lost habitat on a massive scale,” the letter stated. “Even if we could kill all the predators, these herds could still be wiped out by incidents such as automobile accidents, avalanches, stress from snowmobiles and fluctuating winter conditions unfavourable to their survival.”
