What Bears Do When You’re Not Looking…




Ever Wonder What Bears Do When You’re Not Looking?

Published by Alberta Parks, July 25, 2013



These images were captured with a remote wildlife camera as various species visited a “communications” or “rub” tree in Kananaskis Country, leaving a scent as a form of communication to other bears and animals. The image data is being collected as part of a collaborative study looking at multi-species habitat use within our mountainous landscape. In addition to various wildlife species, millions of people visit Kananaskis Country each year. Alberta Parks dedicates significant efforts to maintaining a positive coexistence of wildlife and park visitors through tools such as our bear shepherding program, wildlife proof garbage bins and superior visitor education.
