British Columbia, Canada, is the host of the 2010 Winter Olympics. It is also home to the Great Bear Rainforest—one of the last tracts of temperate rainforest on earth.

You might think that here, bears could live in peace. But each year, trophy hunters slaughter black and grizzly bears with rifles and crossbows for entertainment. Unless we act now, there may one day be a Great Bear Rainforest without bears.

With the 2010 Olympic Games fast approaching, the eyes of the international community are on the province of British Columbia. The trophy hunting of bears in the Great Bear Rainforest is opposed by 78 percent of British Columbians—including the indigenous peoples of Coastal First Nations—and the government's refusal to stop the cruel kill is damaging Canada's international reputation.

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
