ENGO News Release: Grizzly Bear Deaths Too High in the Castle Region: Rally Planned to Protest Logging

June 7, 2011

New Alberta Government data obtained by conservationists show that Grizzly Bears in Alberta’s Castle region are dying at an unsustainable rate. In 2010, 5 grizzly bears out of a population of 51 died in the Castle region and one was trapped and relocated out of it. These six bears represent 11.8 percent of the population lost to the region in a single year.

A healthy relationship to the wilderness is not in the least incompatible with civilized living. Indeed, I believe it to be an indispensable condition thereof; that no man is truly civilized unless he is involved in and cares for the wilderness.
