The Economics of Trapping - Past and Present | Trapped in the Past Part Two

February 17, 2024

In partnership with The Fur-Bearers, we are pleased to present Part Two of the Trapped in the Past documentary series!

Trapped in the Past Part Two: The Economics of Trapping - Past and Present explores Canada's history with the trapping industry, its place in today's society, and the economic, environmental, and cultural sustainability of trapping. After this episode, you will be able to answer the question: does commercial trapping have a place in today’s society?Trapped in the Past exposes Canada's cruel, archaic, unethical and unnecessary commercial trapping industry with current science, hard-hitting research and dynamic interviews with some of the world's leading experts on trapping, including trappers and wildlife biologists such as Gilbert Proulx and Carter Niemeyer. Our goal with the Trapped In the Past series is to equip you with the information you need to speak out on behalf of Canada's fur-bearers like wolves, beavers, lynx and foxes to enable a comprehensive trapping reform that includes a ban on snares across the country.
