British Columbia's Trophy Hunt

This page is in progress. Please check back soon! Meanwhile, a testimonial that makes us proud.

"Both Eric and I would like to thank all of you for all the work you’ve done, helping bring the issues around the grizzly hunt to Canadians. It would have been much easier to publish one gratuitous article on this very contentious issue, but National Observer was in the for long haul, providing their readers with well researched, thoughtful and thought provoking pieces. Of all of the media, we really feel that National Observer gave the most attention to this issue, and in doing so, kept it front and centre in the minds of British Columbians for many years. We believe that, in large part, it was National Observer that helped British Columbians really understand the value of this iconic species and the importance of saving them. We believe that this ban on Grizzly hunting will provide governments, indigenous peoples, and conservationists from around the world, with inspiration and hope. One of my favourite quotes come to mind when I think of National Observer.

'Knowledge is power. Information is liberating. Education is the premise of progress, in every society, in every family.' --- Kofi Annan

Thank you everyone at National Observer, for being a huge part of the 'liberating information' that led to this epic win for grizzly bears!"
