Bears in our Backyards documentary now available

A new documentary is available highlighting the human impact on black bears in British Columbia, and how coexistence can help us all. Bears In Our Backyards: The Struggle To Survive Around Humans was produced by Paul Johnson, a BC-based journalist and past recipient of a Clements Award for his work in media.

Over 500 black bears are killed in British Columbia every year, often due to issues related to food conditioning and attractant management – human-created problems with human-centric answers. The documentary features many advocates and experts discussing the problems (and solutions) that lead to this tragic annual loss of hundreds of black bears. Included in the lineup is Lesley Fox, Executive Director of The Fur-Bearers.

Bears In Our Backyards is available to stream from Vimeo. Click here to get more details and watch the documentary today!
