Local and Regional-Scale Societal Dynamics in Grizzly Bear Conservation
Principal Investigator: Clark, Douglas A.
Licenced Year(s): 2006 2003
Summary: Government agencies responsible for grizzly bear management have made significant investments in biological studies; however, wildlife management programs based solely on biology, without understanding the human side of grizzly bear management, run the risk of creating conflicts. People who share the land with bears are especially affected by these decisions. These conflicts can waste time and mon...
