Parks Canada has a responsibility
to protect wildlife and their habitat.
As a national park visitor, you share this natural area with bears and other wildlife that depend on it for their survival. Although bears are naturally wary of humans, they are unpredictable. By increasing your knowledge of bear behaviour, you can help reduce the likelihood of an unpleasant encounter, and at the same time, help protect the black bear population.
With your cooperation, bears and people can co-exist. By reading this brochure and following its recommendations, you will help protect both yourself and the bears.
For more information, talk to a park warden or other park staff.
