A few small changes will help not only you, but our conservation officers. Francine Ulmer, WILDSAFE.BC Community Coordinator for Powell River, has some suggestions to help with the bear situation in our city and surrounding areas.
Ulmer also suggest to contact the Lets Talk Trash Team to learn how to better compost in bear country, and to go online at www.wildsafebc.com for more information and education. At this current time, Ulmer says we have only one conservation officer dealing with a large area. In the last two weeks 5 bears have been destroyed and in the first week of September there were over 60 reported calls to our local consevation officer
