Bear Smart

Deb Wellwood, RPBio,  has been working with our community in our efforts to become Bear Smart.  She has extensive experience in bear management biology and is recognized as an expert by her peers. Deb has led several community-based bear conflict reduction initiatives.

Reducing bear / human conflicts requires public education for local governments, business and residents towards finding a solution.   Reducing conflicts between wildlife and people will improve public safety; reduce property damage and the number of problem wildlife complaints that require attention by civil servants.  It will also benefit to the management of bear populations.

In addition to several resources available at the Reading Room, the following Bear Insight Newsletters have been authored by Deb Wellwood, with artwork provided by Facundo Gastiazoro.
