Hope for grizzlies means hope for people. Now more than ever, we realize the importance of protecting planet earth to ensure the health and well-being of all living things, including ourselves. Protecting bears is one way we can effectively take action to restore our planet.
In the pages of the "State of the Grizzly", you will notice that our Annual Report has grouped the past three years together in one document–the period defined by the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic forever changed us, and environmental non-governmental organizations were no exception.
When founding the Grizzly Bear Foundation, Michael Audain, OBC OC, reflected that, “we have a species here that is unique and something that we need to pay attention to.”
Through world leading research, support for Indigenous-led conservation and exceptional storytelling, the Grizzly Bear Foundation is making a profound impact and inspiring people worldwide to pay attention and deeply care for the welfare and conservation of the majestic grizzly bear.
