Welcome to the Wild Sheep Society of BC (WSSBC)

We are a non-profit registered Society dedicated to the protection and enhancement of wild sheep and wild sheep habitat throughout “Beautiful British Columbia”.

BC is very fortunate to be home to the largest and most diverse populations of wild sheep of any other province, state or territory in North America. From the dry desert-like climate of the southern interior to the glacial northern most corner along the Yukon border, you can find 4 sub-species of sheep spread across this province. They have adapted to and thrive in some of the harshest environments and they continue to be an iconic symbol of our BC wilderness.

First Nations peoples have long had a deep relationship with wild sheep and an understanding of their importance in the ecosystem. Sheep have also historically had many uses for First Nations including providing for sustenance, societal and ceremonial needs. More recently, they have become highly valued by wildlife enthusiasts for wildlife viewing, as a sign of wilderness and a healthy environment, and as one of the most challenging big game species a hunter can pursue.

The WSSBC was formed in 1998 by a group of dedicated sportsmen and women that recognized the challenges wild sheep face, and decided to take action. They believed it was their responsibility to protect the species they had come to admire. Since then, the Society has grown to hundreds of members provincially and internationally whose crucial funds and volunteer time are funneled into projects around BC with the goal of “Putting More Sheep On The Mountains”. Through our collective efforts, the WSSBC funds wild sheep science and research projects, habitat enhancement and protection projects, and transplants of sheep into unoccupied or historically occupied areas. During our annual Fundraiser and Convention, we engage our membership and the public with updates on the status of our wild sheep populations throughout the province, the latest on our projects and research, awareness of wild sheep health and disease issues, and other educational events related to wild sheep and sheep hunting.

We invite you to tour through our website and learn more about our wild sheep in BC, and we encourage you to become part of our efforts to sustain “Wild Sheep Forever”!
