Kate Marshall Graphics, Inc. tells a great story in this rich presentation of bears in the South, from lowland swamps to mountain peaks. Utilizing their own multi-year wild black bear video and complementing it with photos and video from their guests, they bring the story of southern bears to the forefront of black bear education. Six of the sixteen sub-species of bears in North America are shown.
American Black Bears are beautiful and complex large mammals that have managed to survive alongside humans for a long span of time. Living only in North America, black bears are coping with and adapting to changing habitats, diminishing food sources, new roads and development, as well as increasing numbers of people enjoying the great outdoors. More and more often, bears and people meet. Bear managers keep on top of encounters and education.
Fantastic wild bear footage gives us a well-rounded dramatic and comical view of these bruins. Guests from these organizations share their knowledge, experience, memories and advice about black bears, and also tell why they chose wildlife careers:
