Organization that helps the grizzlies

How they are Helped

The AWA (Alberta Wilderness Association) helps the bears by asking the government to stop maintaining the current population and to help recover them. To do this they need to let the bears have there habitat for themselves and not to hunt them. There habitat is much to small of an area for them, so people need to help to expand their land and their population.
