BC Bear Day was a success!

We co-hosted BC Bear Day in North Vancouver to shed light on how we can coexist with bears.

BC Bear Day this past weekend was a grand success. We saw lots of kids, teddy bears in hand, residents looking for tips on how to coexist with bears and people generally interested in learning more about bears. The afternoon portion of the event was filled with presentations, games, face painting, bear yoga and an art show, fueled by ice cream from Earnest Ice Cream.

In the evening we heard from Doug Neasloss of the Kitasoo/Xai’xais Nation, Jennifer Walkus of the Wuikinuxv Nation, Joanna van Bommel at the UBC Wildlife Coexistence Lab and Luci Cadman from the North Shore Black Bear Society. As a panel they offered a comprehensive perspective on bears in the Great Bear Rainforest and in urban areas, and how we can live and co-exist with them.

Support our mobile lab, Tracker!

Our new mobile lab will enable the Healthy Waters Program to deliver capacity, learning, and training to watershed-based communities. We need your support to convert the vehicle and equip it with lab instrumentation. This will allow us to deliver insight into pollutants of concern in local watersheds, and contribute to solution-oriented practices that protect and restore fish habitat.
