Grizzlies have been wiped out from an estimated 50% of their historic global range, and they've lost 98% of their habitat in the lower 48 United States. In Canada, roads, environmental destruction and other human impacts are fragmenting habitats for wildlife populations, including this majestic bear.
This is a major threat. Grizzlies need vast tracts of land to survive and thrive as a species -- the home range of a male can be up to 2,000 square kilometers. That's why it's crucial that we protect our natural spaces and the wildlife corridors that connect them.
That's where the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) comes in. In the past 50 years, NCC has helped to protect more than 2.6 million acres of ecologically significant land nationwide.
If you believe that protecting habitat for at-risk species is the best thing we can do to protect their future, sign our pledge. We'll let you know how you can help.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
