Black bears are generalists who can survive and thrive in many ecosystems across North America. This very adaptability means their habitats often overlap with our own communities, driving conflicts between humans and bears. Conservation scientist Rae Wynn-Grant offers insights into black bear behavior and ecology and shares tips on what humans can do to improve relations with our ursine neighbors.
