WildSmart Speaker Series: Grizzly Bears
Part 1: Roads, access and Grizzly Bears in Alberta
Part 2: What do we really know about grizzly bear reproduction - new research needs
This presentation will be in two parts. The first section will be a review of what has taken place in Alberta as a result of research findings on grizzly bear mortality and survival rates. How grizzly bear conservation areas are now in place and the management approaches that are being pursued within these areas. Strategies to address current challenges will be reviewed and discussed along with new research efforts aimed to improve grizzly bear survival rates.
The second presentation will review and discuss the challenges of understanding and monitoring grizzly bear reproduction as part of a comprehensive recovery strategy. The presentation will explore new approaches and goals of new research efforts within the Foothill Research Institute Grizzly Bear Program.
