Grizzlies: Sharing Our Forests
with Steven Herrero
January 28, 2014, 7:30 PM.
University of Calgary campus, Science Theatre,
Grizzly bears and people have shared what is now called Kananaskis Country for thousands of years. Usually they have given each other space. Much more rarely violent interactions have occurred. Once people had firearms the balance of power shifted to human control. Today K-Country tries to allow for the needs of grizzly bears and people. The Eastern Slopes Grizzly Bear Project which ran for 11 years has made clear what people need to do to allow grizzly bears to survive and for people to share K-Country and be safe. Come and learn about grizzly bear-human interactions.
