“This summer, while BC’s lower mainland has seen a marked uptick in the number of black bears killed, the same appears to be true across the province. Living on the North Shore and in the Lower Mainland, it’s been difficult to read the constant news stories, especially as so few end favourably for the bears. Many British Columbians are increasingly frustrated, given simple solutions exist. Unfortunately, like many others in their carnivora order, bears are subject to a misplaced fear.”

To help address this Raincoast, @CapilanoU, and @NorthShoreBlackBearSociety are hosting a whole day dedicated to educating all ages about BC’s bears and providing a timely evening discussion on how we can advance co-existence.

Sunday, Sept 22nd at 11am.
