Bear Scare - Wilderness Safety Courses
The best way to prevent conflicts with bears and other wildlife is to minimize contact with them. By following a few simple rules, you can reduce the risk of a bear encounter or attracting them to your location.
The Bear Facts
Despite good intentions and careful precautions to reduce bear encounters, they still occur. Bears are intelligent creatures who try to communicate with humans the same way they do with other animals; using common bear behaviour. To humans, such actions appear aggressive and frightening. Once you learn about bear behavior, however, you will be better prepared for unexpected encounters in ways which enhance human and animal safety.
Be Bear Smart
Before entering bear habitats for work or recreation, it's smart to arm yourself with wildlife encounter training from Bear Scare's certified wildlife management instructors. They will provide helpful insights into bear behaviour and encourage mentally practicing appropriate ways to respond to wildlife encounters to avoid a bear attack.
Bears Matter, Too
Bear Scare believes it is unfair how humans usually handle wildlife encounters. We invade their territory then dole out lethal punishment to creatures just going about their business.
Bear Scare offers a variety of wilderness courses and training sessions to help prepare people for non-lethal resolution of wildlife encounters. We also do bear and wildlife monitoring and site specific wildlife hazard assessments.
The Bear Scare Difference
What makes Bear Scare unique is that wildlife awareness and non-lethal bear management aren't just courses the instructors teach, they were developed out of decades of experience living and working in the wilderness areas of North America.
