The grizzly is Canada’s second-largest carnivore on dry land. This apex predator rules its domain, with no natural enemies except when it young. That doesn’t mean its eminence is unchallenged. The erosion of its habitat and the encroaching humans civilization are serious threats to its existence. Grizzly populations are directly impacted by hunting, road collisions and other conflicts. Additionally, human development has reduced its territory, a serious condition for a creature that requires large natural ranges with adequate food in order to thrive.
