The North Shore Black Bear Society is a non-profit organization supporting responsible coexistence of people and bears through education.
Respectfully observing bears and analyzing data we have collected has allowed us to understand common behavioural traits, seasonal habits, their motivations, how we should respond to bears during an encounter and steps we can take to set boundaries and encourage bears to spend less time close to homes. It is a privilege to share what we have learned from bears with residents and visitors to the North Shore, as well as our growing online community.
Our work and new logo is dedicated to Huckleberry, a young bear from Deep Cove who captured our hearts in the summer of 2020.
Win a fine art canvas of Huckleberry in our fall fundraiser and first ever raffle!
