Climate change has destroyed salmon runs in Canada's rivers. Now, grizzlies are starving.

In 2019, Holly the grizzly bear won a glamorous award when staff at Alaska's Katmai National Park declared her the winner of Fat Bear Week. Holly's delightful girth is actually a critical part of her survival — specifically, making it through the brutally cold winters while she and her brethren are hibernating. Amazingly, she will burn up one-third of her body mass by the time she emerges in the spring. But, unlike Holly, countless other bears in nearby Canada are likely to starve to death this coming winter, and all because of climate change.

Canada is warming at twice the global average speed. Climate change has particularly ravaged salmon runs, decimating a key food supply that grizzlies need in order to stay alive. The situation is so dire that volunteers have manually delivered hundreds of pounds of salmon to areas where bears are starving, in the hopes that wildlife will feast on the fish in time to fatten them up before they hibernate. But this is clearly not a long-term solution. Canada needs to get serious about curbing emissions and saving species threatened by climate change! Sign the petition to demand that the province of British Columbia and Canadian federal officials create an action plan to save bears and salmon before it's too late.

Thank you for all that you do,

P.S. Canada's grizzlies are in crisis. Tell officials to create a plan to save the salmon runs that grizzlies rely on to survive!
