Reducing human-wildlife conflicts through proactive and preventative strategies.

Project Info

Project Description


The Blackfoot watershed provides excellent habitat for species like grizzly bears, wolves, and elk. When large wildlife populations overlap with humans, conflicts can occur. Examples include bears destroying beehives, wolves killing livestock, or elk grazing on large amounts of hay. Since 2002, the Wildlife Committee has brought landowners, biologists, and others together to share information about wildlife activity in the watershed, identify shared values, and cooperatively form management strategies to minimize human-wildlife conflicts. The Committee has installed electric fencing around beehives and calving grounds, loans bear resistant dumpsters to watershed residents, and coordinates the Carcass Pick-Up and Range Rider Programs.
