Bear Management Strategies
The NRRM has been active in addressing citizens concerns of bears in our community. We have:
- Enacted a new Bylaw: Garbage Disposal and Wildlife Attractants Bylaw No. 5, 2009 [opens a new window in the NRRM filepro site]. This bylaw will work to reduce the root causes of bears in our community.
- Signed a Letter of Agreement with the British Columbia Conservation Officer Service providing additional funding from the NRRM. A new Conservation Officer has been hired in order to increase the capacity of the Service in Fort Nelson.
