Review for NORTH AMERICAN BEAR CENTER, Ely, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a proud supporter of the NABC/WRI and have been a volunteer for the NABC/WRI since 2010. I have learned so much about black bears and continue to learn something every day. Thank you Dr. Rogers and Sue Mansfield! My fear has changed to respect - I marvel at the interaction between bears that I have observed and learned from.

Review for NORTH AMERICAN BEAR CENTER, Ely, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have volunteered at the NABC since early 2010 and have found it to be a remarkable experience. I have learned a tremendous amount about black bears and people. I am amazed at the energy and evolving educational aims/goals of the NABC and the dedication and hard work of the researchers, staff and volunteers to achieve these goals.

Review for WILDLIFE RESEARCH INSTITUTE, Ely, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Dr. Lynn Rogers and Sue Mansfield, biologists, have studied individual black bears in one clan for many years. Through their work they have been able to walk with the bears and gain valuable insight into eating, breeding, reproductive and family socialization habits of the black bear, and to then share this information with the world. They have provided tools for education in classrooms and opportunities for filming documentaries by the BBC. They have given me a changed perception of the black bear, from an animal to be simply feared, to an animal to be respected, remembering that it is a wild animal.
