Help us send a message to the BC Liberal government, to restore BC Parks funding to the 2000 levels, to reclaim one of British Columbia's most valuable natural assets. Here are some things you can do to help:

Click and send e-mail to the Premier and Minister

Express your concern about the neglect of BC Parks, and request that the BC government restore funding to the 2000 level of $40 million a year.

Q: How many full-time park rangers do you think there are to serve the 1000 parks and protected areas - more than 32 million acres of land? A: 10 only.

In 2001, there were 27 full-time park rangers. A decade later, their ranks have been cut by more than 60 per cent. The number of full-time-equivalent seasonal park ranger positions has also seen a 60 per cent cut.The BC government has cut $10 million from the BC Parks budget - including $2.5 million in 2009 and more than $660,000 in the last year.

More than 40 park vehicles have been cancelled. Gasoline and travel budgets to patrol BC parks were slashed. In some cases, rangers have had to consider patrolling parks by Greyhound bus or taxi, for lack of a vehicle. Some parks areas have no budget for toilet paper.

Our parks cannot take any more neglect. Infrastructure is decaying. Lack of patrols are resulting in vandalism and theft from BC parks, and an increased risk of wildfires.

Meanwhile, the BC government's own study on the economic benefits of BC Parks shows that $10 dollars in economic activity is generated for every dollar invested by the government in BC's parks system. Clearly, it is time to re-invest in BC's provincial parks system.

The sasquatch in the Ranger Danger video isn't just another pretty face. He is a multi-talented simian with a unique viewpoint on modern technology and culture. Watch these short outtakes from the video shoot
