(MyFWC) – The Florida black bear is a conservation success story with a recent population estimate of 4,350 adult bears.
With this healthy and increasing population, there come challenges. Join the bear management conversation at one of three webinars.
The webinars will be held May 26, May 31 and June 2, each beginning at 6 p.m. EDT.
In June 2015, the FWC Commissioners approved a limited bear hunt to take place in October 2015 in four of the seven BMUs. As outlined in the article by FWC Director Nick Wiley, the hunt is a tool being used to stabilize bear subpopulation numbers.
