Bears and residents

Description

Alberta is home to approximate 40,000 black bears and 700 grizzly bears. Black bear populations are secure and are managed using public hunting seasons. Grizzly bears were listed as 'threatened' in 2010 and their management is currently guided by a recovery plan. Recovery efforts are focused on reducing human-bear conflicts and human-caused mortalities of grizzly bears.
