Protecting grizzlies by learning more about huckleberries
Predicting the location of huckleberry patches important to Grizzly Bears is key to habitat protection. In an FWCP-funded project, 1,179 potential huckleberry sites were visited—including 332 in 2019—and 768 were found to be used by Grizzly Bears. This dataset was used to create predictive modelling to apply to the East Kootenay, North Columbia, Central Purcell, Selkirks, Valhalla, and Granby regions to support local Grizzly habitat.
