Grizzly bear response guide

Description

This guide provides a standard approach in deciding grizzly bear management responses. It is a resource for government staff who must act in situations of conflict where clear, concise and consistent direction is needed. The guide harmonizes with the province's Grizzly Bear Recovery Plan and is the result of collaboration among biologists, Fish and Wildlife officers and problem wildlife specialists. Except in national parks, this guide will apply to specific events involving grizzly bears throughout the province, including lands within provincial parks and protected areas. This guide will be reviewed annually and revised as required. This guide also shows Albertans how bear/human conflicts will be handled. Staff will use the guide as a reference to communicate with stakeholders and the public about managing problem grizzly bears and to promote public and community support for grizzly bear conservation.
