Cottagers have a special connection with nature and the outdoors. We also have a role to play in co-existing with wildlife.
FOCA is working in partnership with the Ministry of Natural Resources Bear Wise Program to help reduce preventable causes of human-bear conflict.
Many human-bear conflicts happen over garbage, food left out for birds or pets or dirty barbecues. These can be prevented. Our tips and information can help cottagers learn more about what attracts black bears and what cottagers can do to bear-proof their properties.
