The Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission seeks your help to increase their understanding of the Florida black bear’s range and activity. The FWC biologists hope that involving the public, will help them to get additional data on the local bear population.
All bear sightings and especially those of female bears and their cubs are welcome.
As fall has arrived, and pleasant temperatures lure you back to the wild ares of Florida, all those hikers, kayakers, bird-watchers and hunters should report any bear tracks or encounters and submit their information or photo’s to the FWC’s website.
The growing human population in this state puts an ever increasing pressure on the already limited and isolated areas of bear habitat. Improved knowledge and better preservation will help us to better coexist with these elusive animals!
