Help Us Fight For Them

IT IS TIME TO STOP BEAR HUNTING!

 

Following our 2016 victory stopping bear hunting in Florida, we transformed into our group into Bear Defenders intending to share our knowledge and strategy with others to stop bear hunting in their State. Bear Defenders incorporates the methods and actions we used to stop the Florida black bear hunt. Our experience allows us to educate people on coexisting with bears and teaches others how to take action by utilizing grassroots efforts such as protesting, attending their state wildlife meetings, writing petitions, and media interactions.

We need your help now in North Carolina and Louisiana!

Washington Spring Bear Hunt!

Following our victory in canceling this year's (2022) Spring Bear Hunt in Washington, WDFW Commissioner Don McIssac, has submitted a pre-proposal form (CL101) that is the first step in the agency's rulemaking process and could lead to another vote on spring bear hunting. The WDFW may discuss this proposal during their next meeting scheduled for June 24, 2022. We need to reiterate that we DO NOT SUPPORT the spring bear hunt. Please sign & share our petition and complete the calls to action.
