Welcome

Welcome to the Wild Sheep Society of BC (WSSBC). We are a non-profit registered Society dedicated to the protection and enhancement of wild sheep and wild sheep habitat throughout “Beautiful British Columbia”.

BC is very fortunate to be home to the largest and most diverse populations of wild sheep of any other province, state or territory in North America. From the dry desert-like climate of the southern interior to the glacial northern most corner along the Yukon border, you can find 4 sub-species of sheep spread across this province. They have adapted to and thrive in some of the harshest environments and they continue to be an iconic symbol of our BC wilderness.

First Nations peoples have long had a deep relationship with wild sheep and an understanding of their importance in the ecosystem. Sheep have also historically had many uses for First Nations including providing for sustenance, societal and ceremonial needs. More recently, they have become highly valued by wildlife enthusiasts for wildlife viewing, as a sign of wilderness and a healthy environment, and as one of the most challenging big game species a hunter can pursue.

The WSSBC was formed in 1998 by a group of dedicated sportsmen and women that recognized the challenges wild sheep face, and decided to take action. They believed it was their responsibility to protect the species they had come to admire. Since then, the Society has grown to hundreds of members provincially and internationally whose crucial funds and volunteer time are funneled into projects around BC with the goal of “Putting More Sheep On The Mountains”. Through our collective efforts, the WSSBC funds wild sheep science and research projects, habitat enhancement and protection projects, and transplants of sheep into unoccupied or historically occupied areas. During our annual Fundraiser and Convention, we engage our membership and the public with updates on the status of our wild sheep populations throughout the province, the latest on our projects and research, awareness of wild sheep health and disease issues, and other educational events related to wild sheep and sheep hunting.

We invite you to tour through our website and learn more about our wild sheep in BC, and we encourage you to become part of our efforts to sustain “Wild Sheep Forever”!

The Wild Sheep Society of British Columbia is pleased to present our new logo. After months of careful consideration and deliberation, we decided to commemorate our 25th anniversary and celebrate our future by offering a fresh face to the Society.

You will notice a new clean logo that clearly represents the WSSBC. The province of British Columbia is outlined in the background and the ever present Bighorn that people identify with our organizaiton is in the foreground.

2018 marks our 25th anniversary and we are incredibly excited about our future. Through the dedication of our members in 2017 we contributed over $25,000 to a Northern BC burn project that restored critical thinhorn sheep habitat. We have many projects that we are pursuing that will contribute to the long term health of Wild Sheep in BC.

In the coming months, keep a close eye on our website and social media platforms as we will be offering exciting opportunities to win merchandise sporting the new logo. We will also be hosting informal get togethers across the province of BC where you can come out and pick up some of the cool new merchandise, meet WSSBC Directors, and learn a little bit more about our conservation work in BC.

Let us know what you think of our new logo at wssbc.communications@gmail.com

Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to working with you on sustaining "Wild Sheep Forever!"

Sincerely,

The Wild Sheep Society of BC
Board of Directors
