UBCO study finds overpasses needed for grizzly bears

The Kelowna Capital News reported on researchers at UBC’s Okanagan campus who determined how female grizzly bears keep their cubs safe while crossing the Trans-Canada Highway.

Adam Ford, Canada Research Chair in Wildlife Restoration Ecology, and Montana State University’s Tony Clevenger, found mother bears travelling with cubs often chose to use a wildlife overpass instead of a tunnel to cross the highway.
