The Whitehorse Bear Working Group has undertaken a study of bear hazards and risks for the Whitehorse area. We are pleased to announce that the study has been completed and the Whitehorse Bear Hazard Assessment will be available for public review this spring (2016). The project was a collaborative effort with support from all local governments, Yellowstone to Yukon (Y2Y) and Margo Supplies. With financial assistance from the Community Development Fund, the WBWG will be hosting a series of presentations and workshops for key stakeholders and the public in April 2016. Please check back here in the coming weeks for dates, times and venues. We look forward to sharing the study results and hearing from you about how we may move forward with making Whitehorse a safer place for both humans and bears.
