Other Organizations Addressing Human-Bear Conflict

Other organizations addressing human-bear conflict:


When bears cross paths with humans and aren’t chased away… they quickly learn that humans aren’t something to fear. When they find food in those humans’ trash cans or tents, the bears learn to associate people and people things with the presence of a reliable meal. Those lessons increase contact between bears and people, which, in turn increases the chances of what rangers call “bear-human conflicts”. That’s dangerous for people, obviously, but it’s also dangerous for bears, who could end up shot when all they really wanted was your leftover hamburger.  — Maggie Koerth-Baker
