Get Bear Smart Society

Who we are

The Get Bear Smart Society works hard to ensure people and bears safely and respectfully coexist. We have helped create a paradigm shift in people’s attitudes toward bears and other wildlife by replacing fear and misunderstanding with respect and understanding.

Our goal is to minimize the number of bears killed as a result of human-caused problems. We accomplish this by helping the public prevent conflict at their homes, work and play; championing policymakers to create Bear Smart communities; and encouraging police and bear managers to choose non-lethal bear management practices.

The Bear Necessities

A Bear’s Bill of Rights

A bear has the right to expect that you will:

– be an educated resident of bear country and be willing to accommodate the needs of bears into your lifestyle and daily habits

– have realistic expectations about living in bear country; to realize that is unacceptable to attract bears to your property with improperly stored garbage, recycling, bird feeders, smelly compost, and barbecue grease among other enticing non-natural attractants

– set aside the necessary time to properly dispose of your garbage; clean your barbecue; and pick ripe fruit from your trees

– take responsibility for your actions in a bear’s habitat while hiking and camping

– be aware that you share roads and pathways with bears as well as other wildlife and give wildlife the right-of-way

– provide a healthy, unpolluted environment for bears to live in; and to leave places where bears can forage, raise their families and find dens

Jeanie remembered:

An ambassador for bears

Some beings leave lasting impressions in our hearts; Jeanie was one of those extraordinary bears who will be forever remembered as an ambassador for her kind.

Jeanie was killed on October 20th, 2011 as a result of preventable conflict with people. She will truly be missed. RIP beautiful girl.
