Now is the time to invest, conserve, protect and restore our landscapes and wildlife to stabilize and restore what makes British Columbia special. This requires a commitment from the Province to re-establish British Columbia as a world leader in fish, wildlife and habitat management.
Best Practices for Meeting with Elected Officials
As passionate conservationists, hunters, anglers and outdoor enthusiasts, it is important to voice your concerns to your elected officials on government decisions effecting fish, wildlife and their habitat.
The BCWF has created two “Best Practices” videos to provide information and support to you. The first video outlines how to book and prepare for a meeting. The second video outlines what and how you may want to communicate during your meeting.
Best Practices – Part 1

The Ministry of Forest, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development created the Together for Wildlife, Strategy for Improving Wildlife Stewardship and Habitat Conservation in British Columbia, outlining several commitments to review and make recommendations for dedicated funding and potential new creative funding models in 2021.
The B.C. Wildlife Federation’s (BCWF) mission is to protect, enhance and promote the wise use of the environment for present and future generations.
The BCWF will remain focused on the mandate to:
- Consult with all levels of government
- Provide outdoor education and conservation expertise
- Lead outreach activities promoting British Columbia’s outdoor heritage
- Advocate for science-based fish and wildlife conservation and management
- Defend access to public resources
“We are working closely with like-minded organizations to safeguard legislative and regulatory mechanisms, decision-making, independent science oversight and planning functions to ensure we do not slip into endangered species recovery across the province,” Jesse Zeman, B.C. Wildlife Federation Director of Fish and Wildlife Restoration Program, said.
