EWC April 23' Update
We have lots to share with you from this past month! How to be a part of the solution, what's in the news, a great wildlife photography tip, and a book recommendation to improve your tracking skills!
The EXPOSED Wildlife Conservancy is a non-partisan non-profit which looks to provide ethical and science-based solutions to solve the most pressing wildlife management challenges facing us today. Our goal is to protect the environment for the benefit of the public by conserving and restoring ecosystems and biodiversity on a long term basis. By focusing on specific issues surrounding apex predators and developing effective, realistic, and ethical solutions, we are striving for meaningful updates to Canada's current wildlife management practices to better reflect modern-day perspectives on wildlife. Help give apex predators a voice by getting involved.
After research in the early 2000s showed a struggling grizzly bear population in Alberta, the trophy hunt was banned and the grizzly bear was listed as Threatened species. Recent data released in March 2021 indicates that Alberta grizzlies are starting to rebound and the Environment Minister has gone on record suggesting that the province might bring back the hunt. This campaign, in conjunction with the Grizzly Bear Foundation, takes aim at this issue with a documentary titled, In the Crosshairs: The Road to Recovery for Alberta’s Threatened Grizzly Bears, which launches on Thursday, August 26th at 7:30 pm MST.Learn More & Take Action
Africa's lions are revered around the world and we believe Canada's big cats deserve the same. Recent research indicates that cougars play an integral role in our provinces as ecosystem engineers, helping to shape the landscape for everything below them in the food chain. Yet cougars, lynx and bobcats are all still hunted with hounds throughout Western Canada. Your support now will help us develop our campaign protecting Canada's big cats and produce our first documentary about how these beautiful felines are hunted for trophies.Learn More & Contribute
As humans continue to increasingly share space with cougars through living or recreating in their habitats, chances of interacting with cougars are also increasing. Currently, Alberta manages cougars through hunting. We propose developing and implementing a cougar-focused educational program that will dispel myths, increase tolerance for this important apex predator, and provide methods to reduce conflicts before they happen.Learn More & Contribute

Hundreds of thousands of scientifically proven to be inhumane snares and other styles of traps are set legally across the Canadian wilderness every winter to catch, hold, and kill fur-bearing animals like wolves and lynx. In partnership with The Fur-Bearers, our campaign takes aim at the outdated and inhuman practices of Canada's trapping industry with a hard-hitting, eye-opening investigative documentary, Trapped in the Past: Does Canada’s Trapping Industry Need Change?Learn More
We are dedicated to raising awareness of critical wildlife and conservation issues in Canada. We are exposing current wildlife management practices lacking in scientific basis, ethics and/or social acceptability while providing solutions based in science, fact, and ethics to better reflect modern perspectives on how wildlife should be conserved, protected, and enjoyed for generations to come.
In January 2016, we started our educational web series as a way to raise awareness about wildlife conservation issues in Canada and beyond, using images, videos and storytelling as a means to engage you, our loyal audience, and make a difference for apex predators. In that time, you’ve helped our web series grow: we have reached more than one million viewers with our videos!
The EXPOSED Wildlife Conservancy is committed to a number of active projects aimed at protecting wildlife and conserving habitat. Our project and campaign efforts are research based and offer modern, ethical, and science-based solutions wherever possible. Please consider helping us educate and raise awareness in support of apex predators by learning more about what we are working on and getting involved.Learn More
The EXPOSED Wildlife Conservancy believes that education is the key to enabling change in how our wildlife is managed. Our videos and messaging aim to arm you with knowledge and information that you can use in combination with your passion to fight for our wildlife and wilderness areas against trapping, trophy hunting and resource exploitation.
Our community includes more than 250,000 passionate followers across all social media platforms, committed to helping give our wildlife a voice. It is this community that helps our photo and video content to be seen by millions and provides us the opportunity to be heard and to make a difference.
The EXPOSED Wildlife Conservancy is committed to giving our wildlife a voice and we collaborate with other non-profits and environmental NGOs who are dedicated to specific conservation initiatives that align with our own goals. These collaborations can help create even larger, and more impactful, campaigns.
We have developed a well-researched, professionally-produced web series that explores the most complex conservation issues facing our wildlife today. Our educational web series delves into topics such as biodiversity, trapping, trophy hunting, wildlife ecology, wildlife management, and environmental policy, to deliver you the most up-to-date information on the most critical conservation challenges facing us today.
As a non-profit organization, we are funded through donations from generous and passionate wildlife advocates like yourself that want to be a part of the solution to how apex predators are managed in Canada. We also have a team of volunteers that are dedicated to making a difference for apex predators.
