Alberta’s Bats on Non-Licence Animal List

April 10, 2014

Letter from AWA to Honourable Robin Campbell Minister of Environment and Sustainable Resource Development. There is an urgent need for the immediate removal of all nine of Alberta’s bat species from the Non-Licence Animal List. Hibernating and migratory bats are facing imminent risk of significantly reduced populations from White Nose Syndrome and wind turbine deaths, respectively, and require formal protection instead of being considered “pests.”

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.
