I have been a research scientist studying conservation and implementing management of grizzly bears for the past 20 years. The real challenge in coexisting with grizzly bears is managing people. To do that we need to understand how to live, work, and behave in bear country, and then get ourselves to actually integrate these principles into our daily lives. No one understands this and knows how to make this happen better than Kim Titchener. Her innovative WildSmart program actually reaches people in ways that connect and has proven very successful.
