Dealing with the public is the number one challenge (after stretching the budget) agencies face today. Living with Bears Handbook will help staff at all levels communicate with the public and stakeholders in ways that go beyond pure information and help you inspire understanding, cooperation and change.
“A copy of this book should be in the door pocket of every agency official who deals with human/bear conflicts and gives a damn about bears.”
Chris Parmeter, District Wildlife Manager, Colorado Parks and Wildlife
Hundreds of professionals contributed to Living with Bears Handbook. It’s a tool you can use and recommend with confidence.
“We ordered books for all our field personnel statewide. It will help us be more consistent in our messaging and responses to the public and the media. The information is sound and up to date, and has been thoroughly reviewed by numerous top bear biologists. It will be a great resource for our staff, as I’m confident it would be for other agencies.”
- Rich Beausoleil, Bear and Cougar Specialist, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife
“It’s required reading for our college intern program because it is the only book I know of that provides a comprehensive look at how bear managers across North America are working to reduce human-bear conflicts and the approach to the subject and overall theme aligns with FWC’s views on this important issue.”
- Dave Telesco, Bear Management Program Coordinator, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
