Re: “Corridor calls for provincial action on grizzly bear recovery plans

Thank you for writing this article!
About 30 years ago when there were maybe a dozen bears remaining in the north cascades of southern BC biologists (me included) predicted the loss of grizzly from the area in a few decades and lobbied for recovery actions. Today there are maybe two or three grizzly left in the core area. An old grizzly lives to be 35 or so years old so with no known babies on the scene it is just about time to say goodbye. The maddening part is that over a decade ago the BC govt approved a scientifically solid muiti agency recovery plan for grizzly in the BC north cascades. Not implemented by govt choice and the plan has languished ever since on the govt website. More planning in the north cascades is unnecessary...implementation of recovery is. The planning team (me included) said back then ...it needs a few reproductive females added from elsewhere to kick start population growth. That conclusion remains valid and even more significant today. Al Peatt, RPBio
