Grizzly Bear Coexistence Solutions promotes coexistence between grizzly bears and rural residents in the Columbia Region through education, collaboration, and the use of practical tools. Coexistence is made possible using correctly installed electric fencing to prevent bear conflicts and associated grizzly bear mortalities in low elevation linkage habitats that often overlap with agricultural lands.

Report ID:  59171

Audience:  Government and Public

The project also provides grizzly bear safety education and bear spray training for front country and back country users. As conflicts are reduced, and people are better educated about grizzly bear behaviour and provided with tools to mitigate conflicts, there will be improved grizzly bear conservation status in the region, including enhanced connectivity between core grizzly bear populations. This project aligns directly with FWCP Upland and Dryland, and Wetland and Riparian Action Plans. The action type is Species of Interest and the direct action is to support grizzly bear conservation actions, specifically the use of electric fencing (COLUPD.SOI.SB.24.01).
