This is the primary video in the Safety in Bear Country video series, and is a major educational tool for anyone living, traveling, or working in black and grizzly bear country in North America. It includes the consensus opinion of leading experts on bear behavior and its relevance to human safety. Viewers will develop a better understanding of bear behavior and how this knowledge can help them to minimize the chance of bear encounters and bear attacks. The video stresses that a much greater degree of co-existence with bears is possible if people understand and apply a few safety principles.
Presented by members of the Safety in Bear Country Society: John Hechtel, Stephen Herrero, Grant MacHutchon, Andy McMullen, Jane McMullen and Phil Timpany.
In cooperation with the International Association for Bear Research and Management.
