The Urban/Suburban Black Bear Study: Objectives, Early Results, and Strategies for Co-Existence
Black bears occupy 60% of North Carolina, and are living in closer proximity to human populations with increasing frequency. To better understand how bears are utilizing suburban spaces, and to inform current and future bear management plans, researchers from North Carolina State University and the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission collaborated to form the Urban/Suburban Black Bear Study. Since 2014, the study has been GPS radio-collaring black bears in the Asheville environs to learn more about the ecology of these animals in suburban spaces, including space use, survival, and reproduction. Please join Jennifer Strules, Project Biologist, for a summary presentation on the project’s objectives, early findings, and proactive strategies for successfully co-existing with black bears.
Jennifer Strules has acted as Project Biologist for the Urban/Suburban Black Bear Study since its founding in 2014. She holds a Master’s degree in Wildlife & Fisheries Conservation, and has been a Wildlife Biologist for 18 years. Primarily a mammologist, her research interests include anthropogenic influences on wildlife ecology, and wildlife nutrition and foraging.
