The Grizz - Canvas And Paper Prints
Canvas and Paper Prints of a majestic Grizzly Bear.
This painting was commissioned by the Whistler Pique News Paper as cover art for their story about the return of the Grizzly. These kings of the forest live in the coastal mountain range and are some times spotted just a few kilometers from Whistler.
Only 7.1% of Grizzly Bears total range is protected protected through areas such as parks or reserves.
Conservation efforts exist through limited hunting restrictions in Canada with only Alberta having a complete ban on Grizzly bear hunting (with the exception of Aboriginal subsistence hunting). Westwards, in British Columbia, hunting is limited by the number of hunting authorizations which are issued to resident hunters through a random draw. The province also has severe penalties for the possession, selling or exporting of trophy body parts.
