Grizzlies like the The Boss Could Find Themselves in the Crosshairs of Alberta Hunters this Spring

Alberta banned grizzly bear hunting in 2006 and in 2010, grizzlies  were classified as Threatened in the province. But now new research is expected to show an increase in some Alberta grizzly bear populations and many suspect the UCP government will use this new data to reintroduce the trophy hunt. Please help Alberta’s grizzlies now with a donation to support this important project to raise public awareness.

Our Feature Campaigns

As special interest groups continue to push for trophy hunting of our apex predators regardless of science and societal values, EXPOSED is focused on two major campaigns this summer: the potential reintroduction of the grizzly bear trophy hunt in Alberta and the unethical practice of trophy hunting cougars with hounds. It's time for wildlife decisions to be based on science, not emotion. Please help give our apex predators their voice.

Protecting Alberta’s Grizzlies

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.

Protecting Canada's Big Cats

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.
