No matter where you live or visit in the Yellowstone to Yukon region, you can practice coexistence.

Here are some ways to get involved and ensure animals stay safe:

  • Remove fruit trees and berry bushes, or pick fruit promptly, on your property.
  • Dispose of trash properly so bears can’t access it easily.
  • Carry bear spray when recreating.
  • Leash dogs so all furry friends stay safe.
  • Host a showing of the free Living with Wildlife film at home, work or at a school.
