For 20 years, governments in Canada and the U.S. have recognized that the grizzly bear is a sensitive species in need of additional protection. While the U.S. has brought threatened grizzly populations back from the brink, efforts to protect populations in Canada have been an abysmal failure. The Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC) has just released its second assessment of the status of Canada’s iconic grizzly bear. The report found that while many parts of Canada support healthy grizzly populations, 16 subpopulations in western Alberta and southern B.C. are at risk of continued decline and eventual extinction. This is our chance to pressure provincial and federal governments to increase protections for grizzly bears and the habitats on which they depend.

Discourage Urban Sprawl | Reduce your carbon footprint | What you can do Canadians must really like each other. Although we live in one of the world's largest countries with an endless horizon of space, we choose to live right next to each other in our cities. Over 80% of us now live in urban areas. As our cities grow bigger, urban sprawl is beginning to affect our quality of life. The most obvious problem is that sprawl leads to a car-dependent culture—and driving is stressful for drivers and for nature. Sprawl affects us in surprising ways—like draining our precious free time and expanding our waistlines. Urban sprawl is cutting into precious farm and wildlands, leaving us with less greenspace and precious wildlands, like bogs, which are being drained and paved over, putting valuable wildlife habitat and species at risk. Okay, so you know sprawl is bad news for your health and for nature, so what can we do about it? If you are moving, choose a home that is within a 30-minute walk, bike or transit ride from work, school or shopping.
