In January of 2015, the Liberal government of British Columbia announced a five-year plan that would see helicopter companies cull wolves in the South Peace and South Selkirk Regions. The cull was initiated in response to substantial declines in endangered mountain caribou and has seen the death of over 400 wolves.

Culling wolves to save caribou is a scientifically flawed approach and, simply put, is an irresponsible biological experiment. The data elicited from the Alberta wolf cull proved that removing apex predators did nothing to recover endangered caribou herds.
