According to the U.N. the year provides an opportunity to raise awareness about the importance of biodiversity for life on Earth, reflect on what has been done to safeguard it, and focus on the urgency of action. Both Canada and Alberta are in a great position to use this opportunity to demonstrate to the world its leadership potential in preserving species at risk, including the grizzly bear.This means in the coming months it will be more important than ever that we continue to speak up for B.E.A.R.S. in Alberta! All the great effort of Action Grizzly Bear members over the last year has set the stage to generate meaningful government action on grizzly bear recovery in 2010. Let’s make it happen!
