Share this Post

In an effort to provide campground operators with the necessary resources and education to lessen conflicts with bears and other wildlife, WildSafeBC (British Columbia, Canada) has launched the Bare Campsite Program.

According to a report, the Bare Campsite Program has been proven to be an effective model for reducing conflicts between campers and bears, raccoons, and other wildlife.

The program also effectively reduces the number of bears becoming food-conditioned and has saved the lives of numerous bears. Furthermore, campgrounds are more secure, providing a more enjoyable experience for everyone.

The courses are self-paced and can be completed at any time in three weeks.

For more information on the Bare Campsite Program, visit https://wildsafebc.com/programs/bare-campsite-program/.

Campgrounds implementing the Bare Campsite Program will be invited to take the Pledge–a great way to affirm the campground’s commitment to keeping people safe and reducing collective impacts on local wildlife.
