Don't Kill Florida Black Bears!

  • By: Animal Advocates
  • Target:  Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, Executive Director Nick Wiley

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission are meeting to remove state protection of the Florida Black Bear and their cubs. Hunting of the subspecies was banned in 1994.

Habitat loss is greatly affecting Florida Black Bear populations. Nearly 20 acres  of wildlife habitat are lost to new development every hour in Florida, and motor vehicle accidents that have accounted for 89.5% of deaths since 1994. Hunting of the subspecies was banned in 1994 to further protect the Florida population.

We ask Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to keep protections for the American Black Bear.
