Today we wrap-up our look at Human-Bear Conflicts in the Friday Final.  Education provides a key to reducing unwanted or unfortunate encounters between people and bears.  But, education is part providing information and part providing motivation.  If people don't want to do the simple things that will reduce the chances of conflict, then we're likely to see more problems.

In the Friday Final we get summary thoughts from all of this week's guests.   Listen the the various perspectives here...

And, here are a couple of great websites for learning more about living with bears.  First is the Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks site Living with Wildlife.  Click on the species you want to understand better.  Then, FWP has a general information site, Bears, with links to identifying bears, recreational safety, and bear spray.  Have a great weekend!
