Click on the galleries below to view bear pictures sent in by residents.  Thanks to everyone who contributed pictures to our galleries!

All photos on this website were submitted by residents or Bear Smart Durango unless otherwise noted. Please respect the rights of photographers and ask permission before using for any other purpose. Remote camera photos are from monitoring efforts by Bear Smart Durango, but feel free to share your own!

Remember: Do not harass bears, or put yourself in any danger, just to get photos of bears! If you are feeding bears, either on purpose or inadvertently via human foods, to capture bears on film, hopefully a neighbor reports your actions to Colorado Parks and Wildlife at 970-247-0855.
