Re: Con­ser­va­tion

Griz­zlies and hu­mans just need to get along: new re­port

Canadian Wildlife - - DISPATCHES -

Habi­tat loss, con­flict with hu­mans and lack of gov­ern­ment in­ter­ven­tion were three threats fac­ing Bri­tish Columbia’s griz­zlies listed in a Griz­zly Bear Foun­da­tion re­port. It found that the bears are be­ing threat­ened by hu­mans. Of course, some hu­mans would say it’s the griz­zlies do­ing the threat­en­ing.

Al­though the bears have the ca­pac­ity to hurt hu­mans, the re­port notes, they mainly end up in places where hu­mans live be­cause of habi­tat loss. Another big prob­lem is that peo­ple don’t take the nec­es­sary steps to keep bears away, like keep­ing garbage out of reach. Teach­ing peo­ple more about bears is at the top of the re­port’s rec­om­men­da­tions. Visit griz­zly­bear­foun­da­ for more.
