The grizzlies deserve better neighbours
are essentially "bear parks," areas big enough to provide for the long-term needs of healthy grizzly populations. With the support of First Nations and other communities, a system of GBMA s would cover parts of B.C. that are of high value to grizzlies. These areas would be free of industrial development, with limited road access. They would be connected through undeveloped corridors to allow movement between populations, sort of like grizzly bear freeways. Such movement is essential to genetic health. Sport hunting of grizzlies would not be allowed.
