A Little About Bears
The Brown Bear (Grizzly Bear) is characterized by a distinctive hump on the shoulders, a slightly dished profile to the face, and long claws on the front paws. They occupy the widest range of habitats of any bear species including dense coastal forests, boreal forests, sub alpine mountain areas, tundra, deciduous forests, and desert and semi-desert areas. They were once abundant on the central plains of North America and throughout much of Europe, but have since been exterminated from most of these areas.
Bears eat all kinds of berries, grasses, bulbs, roots, insects, fish and small mammals. Sometimes they eat large hoofed mammals such as moose calves, caribou and elk calves. Most of the time bears prefer to live alone except females when they are accompanied by their cubs.
Why Support the IBA?
The IBA contributes 100% of its donations to research and conservation projects throughout the world. Your funds will go directly to biologists working to educate the public, protect threatened habitats, and mitigate land-use issues related to bears. Researchers work in the field and have first-hand knowledge fo these species, and with your support, they can extend their projects, improve their equipment, and gather more accurate data. This work has broad implications for managers of parks and preserves in grizzly habitat.
