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.”

More logging appeared imminent because vandalized landscapes, just like homes with broken windows, tend to invite more abuse.” Andrew Nikiforuk. This tells it all, whether oil and gas, logging, OHVs etc. already exist, then it seems governments are gung ho to keep going and open it all up to more activity and abuse. . . and why we need AWA more than ever.
