Stopping the Trophy Grizzly Bear Hunt in British Columbia

Presented by Lush Cosmetics

The film Trophy challenges the controversial “sport” that is trophy hunting of grizzly bears across North America, and asks: Can we truly justify killing these animals for entertainment? Partly due to this film and enormous public protest, the provincial government of British Columbia banned the grizzly bear trophy hunt. The first announcement was made in Nov. 2017, but the full ban went into effect on Easter Sunday, 2018.

Time for the Grizzly?

A Chris Morgan Wildlife / Wildlife Media Production

Grizzly bears have lived in the North Cascades for 20,000 years. Today, fewer than ten of them remain. After decades of research, the National Park Service, US Fish and Wildlife Service and other agencies have released proposals to support recovery of this iconic species.


Ecologist and bear expert Chris Morgan tells the story of grizzly bear recovery in Montana’s Cabinet Mountains. Grizzly recovery, done through science and community involvement, could serve as a model for the North Cascades.

Black Bear Cub Life: Breakups and Bear Rubs

Video by Kylie Paul and Alan Ramsey

Produced by MPG Ranch, Missoula, Montana

Yearling black bear cubs spend springtime with mom and siblings…until the big breakup happens. What’s the story with family breakups? Why and when does it happen? What do yearlings and moms do afterwards? Do yearling bears announce their presence via bear rubs or do they hide out?


This film investigates these questions, examining these important life history moments in the lives of 11 yearling bears documented since 2012.

Drums of the Great Bear
Spirit Bear and the Northern Gateway Pipeline

This six minute film by Damien Gillis showing the Gitga’at, Tsimshian and other First Nations’ powerful demonstration against the Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline project in Prince Rupert, B.C. The Great Bear Foundation supported the efforts of the Kitasoo and Heiltsuk Nations, and the Valhalla Wilderness Society in B.C. to create a Spirit Bear Conservancy in 2006. This group protects habitat, not only for spirit bears, but for the myriad species of the rare temperate rainforest ecosystem along the B.C. Coast near Prince Rupert--all of which are at risk from the Enbridge project.
