Save Our Sheep

About Save Our Sheep

Support the  Campaign to save Help the Radium Bighorn Herd.

Radium’s iconic Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep herd is in danger. Once at 250, the herd’s numbers dropped to 120 in Fall 2021. Between late November and mid January 2022, 10 more sheep were killed by vehicle impacts in and around Radium – the majority on the Radium hill south of the village. A number of others were hit by vehicles but able to scramble away, leaving them injured or worse. One driver ended up in hospital.    As we enter the 2022-2023 winter season, we are hoping that the message is getting out to drivers to slow down. With the decrease in the speed limit to 70km/hr, hopefully this will also help to alleviate further collisions.

A Banff-style wildlife overpass for Radium hill has been approved by the Provincial government but to date only partial funds have been allocated. The re-construction of the Coquihalla Highway and other projects being more of a priority. Through your support we can help get this overpass built faster & SAVE THE HERD.

All proceeds from the sales will go towards the fundraising for a wildlife overpass in Radium Hot Springs, BC.
