The Issue

For the first time in twelve years, Alberta grizzly bears could once again be in the crosshairs of trophy hunters. Grizzly bear hunting was banned in Alberta in 2006 and a 5-year Grizzly Bear Recovery Plan was put into action from 2008-2013. It has not been renewed since. In 2010, the species was officially classified as Threatened. Research set to be released early 2021 from Dr. Gordon Stenhouse and the Forest Research Institute (FRI) is expected to reveal an increase in Alberta’s grizzly bear population numbers — any increase in bear populations may be used to justify a re-introduction of the trophy grizzly hunt, rather than using it to determine the best management strategies going forward. The Environment Minister has said the province intends to use this new data to manage grizzlies based on “science, not emotion.”
