The American black bear (Ursus americanus) is North America’s smallest and most widely distributed bear species. They typically live in largely forested areas, but will leave forests in search of food, and are sometimes attracted to human communities due to the immediate availability of food.
In this virtual presentation, Brian Keating from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation will discuss black bear biology, New York’s black bear population, and how to avoid human-bear conflicts and co-exist peacefully with these magnificent animals.
