BC Sheep Summit Objective

The objective is to re-establish Wild Sheep populations to historic abundance across British Columbia.

 

BC Sheep Summit Goals

  1. Bring all interested stake and titleholders together creating a collaborative approach to tackle present wild sheep challenges.  These entities include First Nations, government, guide outfitters, industry, academia, the scientific community, funding partners and conservation organizations.
  2. Establish a baseline of overall wild sheep population numbers including trends for each region across the province.
  3. Rely on scientific and traditional knowledge to accurately identify specific limiting factors to wild sheep which may include herd-health, predation, habitat, disease or other issues.
  4. Provide region-specific working groups to identify the leading challenges to wild sheep and more importantly provide action plans that address these concerns.
  5. While threats to wild sheep will be identified and action plans generated, a long-term goal is to create a conduit for enhanced communication between all stake and titleholders to ensure these action plans are implemented.  We envision providing these action plans to the newly established Together For Wildlife Regional Roundtables and pressing for accountability that they are carried out in line with the SMART goals principal.
  6. Select media representatives have been invited with the goal of promoting the conservation efforts our community is making to ensure the sustainability of wild sheep in British Columbia.
Please RSVP to kstelter@wildsheepsociety.com if interested or share within your organization to those that would support. We will have an attendance limit so please keep that in mind.
