Race to save BC’s bears!

“Race to Save the Bears” is a contest being launched by Humane Society International Canada to help raise awareness about the bear trophy hunt in British Columbia’s Great Bear Rainforest.

Canadians are eligible to join the virtual “race” and compete for a chance to win great prizes.  The grand prize winner, who raises the most funds, will receive a trip for two to British Columbia’s Great Bear Lodge for two all-inclusive nights and a bear-viewing trip to experience the grizzly and black bears of the Great Bear Rainforest.

The bears of the Great Bear Rainforest deserve to live in peace and free of the threat of being hunted purely for entertainment. BC’s grizzlies are now classified as “Special Concern” (or vulnerable) by the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada, and are categorized as a difficult species to manage.  This means we need to act now to help protect such a threatened animal.

The contest just began and ends November 12, 2009.  You can learn more about it here: http://www.hsicanada.ca/protectbears <http://www.hsicanada.ca/protectbears>
