Door to Door Outreach
We will be on the road again in 2017. If you live in Carmacks, Pelly or Copper Ridge, watch for us in your community. We will be coming door to door to help you make your property safe for your family and for bears. We look forward to hearing your stories and finding out what measures you are already taking!
Skagway Road bear viewing a NO NO!
In collaboration with the Carcross & Tagish First Nations, CT RRC, Environment Yukon and Parks Canada we will be monitoring human interactions with bears and educating 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 will be encouraging tourists and tour companies not to use the highway shoulders for bear viewing and not to feed the bears. Please stop and talk with one of our monitors if you see them. Our brochure can be downloaded here.
