Bear Trust International is a good source for learning about coexisting with bears

Bear Trust International envisions a world where bears prosper in their natural habitat while co-existing with sustainable economies. 

Bear Trust Mission 
Bear Trust International works to conserve all 8 species of the world’s bears, other wildlife, and habitat. We believe that wild bears in their natural habitat are key indicators of ecosystem health. Their ability to sustain themselves is, therefore, critical to wildlife. Bear Trust strives to reinforce ecosystem viability through habitat conservation and education projects that build on timely research.

Bear Trust Values

Bear Trust has a common sense and effective conservation philosophy, based on four basic values:
Conservation should be based on sound science and make economic sense; the result of conservation action should help ensure long term sustainability of bear populations and economies

Conservation should include both public and private lands

Nations, communities, and people have a shared responsibility to conserve bear populations and their habitats for present and future generations

Hunting is a part of the world’s natural heritage and should be used as one of many tools for effective wildlife management

Project Initiatives

Bear Trust focuses on 4 primary project initiatives: 1) Conservation Education 2) Bear Research & Management 3) Habitat Conservation 4) Conservation Policy

  1. Any thing that gets the human race to stop thinking only about itself, and start looking at bears in particular and nature in general has to be a great move.
