Momma Bear

I’m a Papa now, and in my new role I have learned a lot about just how hard Mommas work.

Gestating. Lactating. Comforting. Safeguarding. Loving.

(Not) sleeping. Sacrificing.

Repeat. Hour by hour. Day after day. For years.

Today I want to share with you a very special mother.

She is the mother-of-three grizzly we wrote about over the last few weeks.

I can assure you that she is working as hard as other young mothers out there. Especially with three little furballs.

Let’s take the time to thank her for all she does for the grizzlies of the future.

Raincoast’s in-house scientists, collaborating graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and professors make us unique among conservation groups. We work with First Nations, academic institutions, government, and other NGOs to build support and inform decisions that protect aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems, and the wildlife that depend on them. We conduct ethically applied, process-oriented, and hypothesis-driven research that has immediate and relevant utility for conservation deliberations and the collective body of scientific knowledge.

We investigate to understand coastal species and processes. We inform by bringing science to decision-makers and communities. We inspire action to protect wildlife and wildlife habitats.
