The Urban Bear Project

Posted by: Fabrizio Chiariello

The Urban Bear Project

There’s currently a study program called the Urban Bear Project- with the Wildlife Commission and UNC, and we were lucky enough to look at a bear up close with them last evening!  They trap bears in neighborhoods around people’s homes, and then collect data from them- weight, measure, teeth, etc. to have a better understanding of the animals.

We were at a friend’s house the other night, and they had the Project Biologists on their property, and there was a bear under observation. What an experience!
