The Dakota Bowl Bear Sanctuary are local forests that are threatened by BC Timber Sales – an arm of the government that wants to put these forests up for sale to be clear cut logged (Cutblocks DK042, DK043, D044).
The band ‘B.E.A.R.’ (BACK. to EARTH. ADVENTURES. and RE-CREATION) and its leaders Thilo and Tim are very much aligned with the issues of protecting our habitat, protection of bears and our forests….
