As someone who has had personal experience with the work of Dr Rogers, Biologist Sue Mansfield, and others who work at both the WRI and the NABC, I can attest to both the high quality of their work and also to their commitment to increase knowledge of the American Black Bear. As a participant in their Black Bear Field Study course, I saw first hand the time and effort they put into learning about bears, and dispelling the myths about black bear behavior. These are very committed people who work long hours at what is their life's work.
