In the late 1990s, a few years after a few friends and family had joined the nomad lifestyle in Canada, a group of travelers took the bear back to their home in the Yukon.
The bears were now living on a permaculture land, an approach that relied heavily on the use of trees, and it was their natural habitat.
The bear’s hearts weren’t in the backpack: They were in the pack.
The bears, however, had developed a new way of life: They’d made it their mission to stay alive and thrive.
The bear population in Yukon has grown from 10 to more than 20,000 since 1994.
It’s the highest per capita in the world.
And the bear population is growing rapidly.
“It’s amazing that in the midst of all this growth, bears are still living in such isolation and solitude,” says Karen Dabney, a conservation biologist at the Yukonian Wildlife Services.
It’s also important to recognize that these are bears who live in an area that is not well-equipped to handle their new, larger, and more active lifestyle.
Dabneys team has been documenting the bears and other wildlife in the area since the 1990s.
She’s even seen them living in the snow.
The wild bears live in dense forests, and they need protection from vehicles and vehicles.
They can’t go for long walks in their natural surroundings, and if you’re hiking on trails, you can’t see them.
The hunters were there to help protect the bears.
In the early 2000s, they became a kind of security force, protecting the bear with a rifle that can shoot at targets.
But by the mid-2000s, as the bear populations began to increase, the hunters started to become too busy to care for the bears, Dabny says.
They started getting sick and dying.
The Yukon bears had to take the risks of the wilderness to survive.
And so they had to do it alone.
The wild bears have been living in isolation for a long time.
They have little human contact, and for many of them, their life is too isolated to be able to learn how to interact with humans.
The isolation was a result of the bear hunting season.
They were allowed to hunt, but not interact with people.
“When they were younger, they were scared, and when they got older, they learned how to live with the bears,” Dabsey says.
The new hunter-assisted bear management plan in YukontonThe Yukontons new hunter management plan includes a lot of changes.
The first major change is to make sure the bears are protected.
It now includes more stringent requirements for the hunting season, which is when bears are allowed to roam freely in the wild.
The Yukon government says the change will make the bears feel safer.
“The hunting season will be longer and shorter, and the hunters will be required to work more closely with the bear, as well as with the public and other people,” Yukon Wildlife Services said in a statement.
The first hunter-assisted bear season began in October.
The next one, set for January, will be set for March.
There will be an additional hunter-controlled season in April, and there is no word yet on when the remaining bear seasons will be resumed.
The hunting seasons will continue in the spring.
“We are committed to making this program work, and we will be working closely with Yukon Parks, the bear management team, and other hunters and conservationists in the community,” Yukontos conservation director Tim Smith said in the statement.
