The Wild Connection is a group of citizens who care deeply about this place. We work to create healthy communities, economies, and ecosystems. We formed in response to the threats to this area, and are advocating for community and land use planning to ensure this region and all its inhabitants can truly thrive.
piq kiʔláwnaʔ (pronounced “pik-ki-lau-na”) is the Sinixt word for White Grizzly. This critical grizzly bear corridor is situated in the Central Selkirk Mountains in southeastern British Columbia. It encompasses a corridor that runs perpendicular to Highway 31A between New Denver and Kaslo, connecting Goat Range Provincial Park in the north to Kokanee Glacier Provincial Park to the south.
We need a plan. You can help!
Join The Wild Connection, Y2Y, and partners by advocating for a pause on any new, or expansion of existing, commercial recreational tenures until a larger land use planning process is complete for this region.
There is no power for change greater than a community discovering what it cares about.~ Margaret J. Wheatley
