Food conditioned bears along the Skagway Road.
In collaboration with the Carcross & Tagish First Nations, CT RRC, Environment Yukon and Parks Canada we monitored human interactions with bears and delivered education about bear behavior and the dangers of food conditioning this summer along the Carcross and Skagway Roads. In response to concerns from all partners and residents in the area about road safety and negative human-bear interactions we encouraged tourists and tour companies not to use the highway shoulders for bear viewing and not to feed the bears.
