Wildlife and Habitat

What was this engagement about?

B.C.’s diversity of wildlife provides many environmental, cultural, social, and economic benefits to all British Columbians.
The purpose of this engagement was to open a discussion among Indigenous peoples, rural communities, wildlife organizations, natural resource development industry stakeholders, and the public so together we could identify ideas on ways to improve the way we manage wildlife and their habitat.
The Province seeks a better understanding of the challenges facing wildlife management and habitat conservation, and ways to explore opportunities for developing more effective management tools.
The Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development gathered thoughts and feedback on:

  • The engagement approach and how you would like to be involved in the future;
  • Questions posed in the challenges section;
  • Issues or concerns you think we should be aware of;
  • Ideas or solutions you or your organization wishes to share;
  • Anything you wish to share on the topic of how wildlife management and habitat conservation can be improved in B.C.
