Miley Cyrus has answered the call of wild!
This past weekend the singer and her brother Braison Cyrus headed North to British Columbia's Great Bear Rainforest, where they joined forces with Pacific Wild (a local conservation group) in an effort to stop the wolf cull.
Per CBC News, the wolf cull is an annual, legal hunt that's necessary to "remove" the wolves in an effort to save the endangered caribou. Not surprisingly, many environmental activists have called for its end.
Miley and her brother Braison spent Saturday and Sunday in the Great Bear Rainforest with renowned wolf biologists Mary and John Theberge. The former Disney star Instagrammed a handful of pictures from the expedition, writing that she is "changed forever" by what she saw.
"On this adventure something was confirmed that us lovers of nature and all that it brings to this planet already know but unfortunately so many don't understand... WE ARE THESE ANIMALS," she wrote. "What separates us from the animals and the land we want to protect is our vocal ability and freedom of speech. It is our responsibility to give the GBR & all the animals it provides a home for a voice!"
"Not only have I fallen head over heels in love with BC," she wrote, "but I am completely enamored with @pacificwild and all they do to protect this magnificent place #savebcwolves #stoptrophyhunting."
In a video posted by Pacific Wild, Miley made a surprising career confession, saying, "I can't believe I'm not a biologist and I'm a pop star. That's ridiculous."
However, she's not oblivious to the fact that her fame has given her an incredible platform. "What I do is really unimportant, but if I didn't do those things then I wouldn't have the voice that I have to be the megaphone for what these amazing people have researched for so long and can teach me," she explained.
"When I first spoke out, I knew in my heart that the wolf cull was wrong," said Miley. "But after this visit, I know science is on my side, not just on the wolf "cull, but also on the trophy hunt issue. Both are unsustainable and both are horrific. Both have to end."
