GOABC HOSTS INTERNATIONAL WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT SYMPOSIUM

Wildlife Management Symposium - Shane Mahoney

On June 18-19 2014, the Guide Outfitters Association of British Columbia (GOABC) will host its second International Wildlife Management Symposium Stewardship in Action, at the Delta Vancouver Airport Hotel in Richmond BC.

Our first symposium explored social, political and environmental pressures on wildlife management. Following the symposium, the GOABC released Conservation Matters ™, which highlighted the challenges and opportunities that were discussed.

The 2014 symposium focuses on existing conservation projects and balancing competing interests on the land base. Our goal is to increase collaboration on stewardship initiatives within our industry, gather insight from other like-minded organizations and strategize for a prosperous future. With more pressure on the landscape and the animals that live on the land, it is essential to determine more effective ways to maintain strong and healthy wildlife populations in BC.
