Join us Friday, November 20 at 1:30pm for a special Meet the Scientist, “Urban Bears” with Nick Gould, Graduate Research Associate with the Department of Forestry & Environmental Resources at NC State.
Black bear populations occupy almost 2/3 of our state and their range continues to expand, as does human population and development. With humans and black bears living in greater proximity, we have experienced an increase in human-bear interactions. Have we reached the limit of the number of bears people are willing to tolerate?
Gould will discuss his department’s project, the first bear study in North Carolina to examine the ecology of bears living in an urban/suburban environment.
