  • A Message From Get Bear Smart Executive Director Sylvia Dolson

    1,627 views 2 years ago
    Hi! My name is Sylvia Dolson and I am the executive director of the Get Bear Smart Society! Welcome to bearsmart.com and thanks for your interest in bears.

    Please take some time to look around the website, browse through our online store, and connect with us through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube. Also, we welcome you to sign-up for our Bear Smart E-newsletter which provides exclusive bear smart content not available anywhere else.

    Based out of Whistler, BC CANADA, the Get Bear Smart Society works hard to ensure people and bears safely and respectfully coexist. We have helped create a paradigm shift in people's attitudes toward bears and other wildlife by replacing fear and misunderstanding with respect and understanding.

    Our goal is to minimize the number of bears killed as a result of human-caused problems. We accomplish this by helping the public prevent conflict at their homes, work and play; championing policymakers to create Bear Smart communities; and encouraging police and bear managers to choose non-lethal bear management practices.
