North Shore Wildlife Virtual Presentation with North Vancouver City Library
December 1, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm
The North Shore is home to an array of magnificent wildlife. This includes bears, coyotes, and cougars, which are active in the City of North Vancouver. Coyote activity increases over the winter, and bears may be active until mid-December or longer if unnatural food is available to them.
Join Luci Cadman, Executive Director of the North Shore Black Bear Society, as she discusses black bears’ behaviour and seasonal habits, the best practices for exploring and living in areas where bears live, and how to respond in an encounter. The presentation will conclude with a short introduction to coyotes and cougars that focuses on seasonal habits and encounters.
By the end of the workshop, attendees will have better understanding of how to responsibly share the North Shore with black bears, coyotes, and cougars.
The North Shore Black Bear Society is a non-profit organization that supports the responsible coexistence of humans and bears through education. The Society promotes the best practices for living, working and exploring in areas where bears live and seeks to reduce the number of human-caused black bear deaths on the North Shore.
Luci Cadman moved to the North Shore from the UK nine years ago and was inspired to learn more about sharing the landscape with local wildlife. Luci is certified in bear safety and awareness, and is a certified bear-viewing guide. In 2018, Luci expanded the organization’s outreach to cover coyotes, cougars and bobcats.
