BHA Opposes Proposed Bear Hunting Closure

Stand up for black bear hunting in California!

The Fish & Game Commission in California will be considering a petition (2021-027) to eliminate the open hunting season for black bear at the next Commission meeting, February 16-17th. Sign our letter below to oppose closing the bear season and to support science-based management of wildlife in California!

The item will be heard on the second day of the meeting, February 17th. It is within agenda item 29 (29, B, III) and will likely be heard in the afternoon. The Commissioners will likely ask for folks who wish to make public comments on agenda items in 29 to raise their hand on Zoom, or they may go into each specific items in 29B and then ask for hands to be raised (it's up to them to decide where to take comments depending on how many are wanting to participate). Make your voice heard! 

Make your voice heard at the next Commission meeting, and add your signature to our letter below to show that you oppose closing the bear hunting season and instead support allocating additional CDFW staff time and resources to the management of this iconic North American species.
