Jim Walker and the WestLand Panel
The Director of the provincial wildlife branch tells the panel about restoration efforts for B.C.'s four endangered species. Also, an update on a controversial wolf control experiment is defended. Walker says wolves have been established in 90 percent of their original range and across the province, their numbers are increasing. Problem bears are also discussed - North Vancouver being an especially troublesome spot. Officers shot 400 bears there in a single year in response to public complaints.
