Conservation Corner: New Research Identifies Breeding Grizzly Bear Habitat

October 1, 2014

Wild Lands Advocate article, October 2014, by Niki Wilson. Conservation efforts need to focus on breeding habitats. Alberta ecologists developed a tool to accurately chart where and what landscape types female grizzlies prefer to breed. Breeding grizzlies are found more often in high alpine areas. This knowledge could be used to expand the focus of grizzly conservation beyond preventing poaching and railway or highway kills.

In the past I've seen chaos in the hills. And because I study cumulative effects, I know that everything is related. So I've come to realize that there is a big picture and we won't get there unless we plan along the way.
