Monitoring Artificial Bear Dens in Jordan and Campbell River Watersheds

Artificial Bear Den

Monitoring Bear Dens in Jordan & Campbell River Watersheds

The goal of this project is to monitor Black Bear dens (created in 2014 and 2015) through the enhancement of natural structures (e.g. entrances created in hollow trees and stumps) and installation of artificial structures (e.g. modified culverts and moulded dens). This is an innovative scientific project that will provide important information for the management of Black Bear habitat.
