  • Bears in Central Florida freely move between the Ocala National Forest and Wekiva River Basin in one of the best expanses of habitat in the state. Nearly 1200 bears are estimated to  live in this area, which is rapidly being threatened by the effects of encroaching development.

    On Thursday, December 15th, Dr. Daniel Smith, a Research Associate and Wildlife Biologist at the University of Central Florida, will be Orange Audubon Society’s speaker. Information from a recent two-year research project examining habitat use, movement and behavior of bears in the upper Wekiva River Basin will be presented. Dr. Smith will share rare photographs and videos as well as insights on bear activity in the wildland-urban interface. This program will leave you knowing more about bears, their movements, behaviors, and the challenges they face.
