Bear Safety

Human/bear conflict

Human-bear conflict is increasing as more and more humans spend time in bear country. Organizations such as Wildsafe BC aim to understand and address these conflicts to decrease the number of incidents that occur and the number of bears that lose their lives.

Visit the wildsafe website for more information about staying safe in bear country and what to do if you encounter a bear.
