Grizzly Bears

As part of our conservation of grizzly bears, we have collected over 900 grizzly hair samples to establish population statistics in the Chilcotin Mountains and the Bridge River Watershed. Using DNA analysis from the collected hair, we plan to determine population size, habitat use and migration patterns over many years. Through stable isotope analysis we will also learn more about their diet. We already know that the white bark pine is a particularly important food source.
