BC Bear Day at Capilano University

A few years ago we began hosting an International Bear Day with Capilano University and the North Shore Black Bear Society with the intention of drawing more attention to the conservation of bears in all the places they occur. We now have an event with multiple community partners all supporting conservation efforts and initiatives that can benefit British Columbia’s Bears.
