Title: Impacts of Forest Harvesting on the Supply of Bear Dens in Coastal BC Speaker: Helen Davis Date: Tuesday, April 6, 2021 Time: 10:00 a.m. PDT
This talk is open to CVN members and the public (see the registration link below).
Coastal bears need large old-growth structures such as hollow trees for winter dens. In most of coastal BC these structures are not protected and are disappearing due to forest harvesting. The implications of this will be discussed.
Helen Davis is a Registered Professional Biologist who has developed and implemented conservation programs for a wide variety of wildlife, including research and conservation of black bears, grizzly bears, and species at risk.
“Seating capacity” is limited, and you will need to register in advance for this talk. You can check the computer requirements for attendees here.
