First Tuesday with WDFW Bear and Cougar Specialist Rich Beausoleil

Using Karelian Bear Dogs for Carnivore Conservation & Management
When: Tuesday, April 4th, 2023, 7pm

Rich will discuss how Karelian Bear Dogs are used by WDFW to manage human-carnivore conflicts, as well as for other important tasks such as finding injured & orphaned wildlife, assisting in enforcement investigations, keeping wildlife off highways, capturing carnivores for research projects, and education & public outreach. Rich will share some “lessons from the field” and why a partnership with local communities is so essential to protect carnivores and people and to promote coexistence.
