The "BEAR" Essentials
It’s that time of year again in the Tri-Port region. The sun is out (sometimes) and the bears are waking up. Our black bears here on the North Island live in a very difficult environment with hunting pressures, logging, traffic accidents, natural selection, and other predators all affecting a single bear’s survival rate. But the most important species in this equation is us – those that live in the urban interface.

Coming Soon - Bald Eagle Rescue Workshop
Mountainaire Avian Rescue Society (MARS) rescues almost 50 bald eagles per year and responds to twice as many phone calls about them, many of those calls coming from the North Island. MARS needs trained volunteers who can rescue the birds safely and help get them to their Wildlife Centre located South of Campbell River. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact MARS directly at 250-337-2021 or by email at email@example.com. Dates for the Rescue Workshop will be announced. This workshop is sponsored by Western Forest Products. Please click this link to be taken to the MARS poster.
