Helping Bears and Humans Coexist
As people continue to develop land and build homes in areas that are prime wildlife habitat, encounters between people and bears have become more frequent. WCS conservationists work to educate the public on how to reduce human/bear conflicts. By raising awareness of the importance of keeping human food away from bears, as well as guiding land use decisions that will minimize rural sprawl, WCS is helping to improve relations between bears and people.
Bears with Us
Our bears love to swim, wrestle with each other, stretch, and enjoy the enrichment our keepers provide for them, such as foraging for food treats.
