Whether you like her or not, Miley is here and she is here to stay. When she isn't on stage entertaining us, behind the scenes the singer is doing what she can to help others. The young star has done a lot of charity work and even founded the nonprofit Happy Hippie Foundation. A foundation which helps vulnerable and homeless youth.

It's also no secret that Miley really loves animals and she has taken it upon herself to be the voice for her furry friends. Miley headed over to British Columbia to take a stand with conservationists. Their mission is to save the wolves who inhabit the Great Bear Rainforest. This year B.C is heading into it's second controversial plan to save endangered caribou. As sweet as these Reindeer animals might be, the saving of the caribou would see around 200 wolves be culled using sharpshooters from helicopters.

Miley's decided to join forces with nonprofit organisation Pacific Wild to raise awareness about the cull and to try and put a stop to it.

Miley's brother, Braison was on board supporting his sister's efforts.

Over on Instagram Braison reflected on his time in the wild.

'There's no words to explain the feeling you get when you're in a place that is truly wild. Most amazing experience of my life.

Miley knows just how much her fame can help her furry friends

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.

Miley and her brother spent two days with Mary and John Theberge, renowned wolf biologists and outspoken opponents of the B.C. wolf kill along with Dr. Carl Safina, American ecologist and author.

Miley can't believe she's not a biologist.

I can't believe I'm not a biologist and I'm a pop star. That's ridiculous. But that's given me such a platform, even people that have worked in research for 52 years. It takes someone like me and where I am in this platform to be able to talk to all of these young people who really do want to make a change.

Reflecting on her trip Miley wrote,

When I first spoke out, I knew in my heart that the wolf cull was wrong. 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.

Miley added this heartfelt note about the trip over on her Instagram page.

'I may have left B.C. for now but my heart is still very much there.... Along with the grizzlies that when I first locked eyes with changed me forever & the wolves that sing such beautiful songs calling out for one another.... But the hearts of everyone in this photo (John & Mary Theberge, Carl Safina, Ian McAllister, April Bencze, Douglas Neasloss, and my brother Braison) the people of First Nations and caring humans of B.C. will be broken if these amazing creatures are no longer apart of the ...
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 (if you ever see the bottom of a bears feet as he climbs to shore after catching breakfast you'll know exactly what I'm talking about, I also learned on this trip I have quite the grizzly foot fetish!) .... 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 but I am completely enamored with @pacificwild and all they do to protect this magnificent place '

Miley is just heaps awesome for standing up for what she believes in.
