In addition to adding bear-proof trash cans, the burgeoning town has also replaced attractants like fruit trees, built wildlife crossings over highways, and provided education to the local populace. Their creative solutions have helped to manage local wildlife while keeping residents and visitors safe to enjoy the beautiful scenery the area has to offer.

See this problem-solving town take action in this short film by Leanne Allison and Front Range Films.

  1. Canada's Bow Valley draws over 4 million visitors every year to its wildlife-friendly town. How do you think other places in the world can achieve this level of coexistence between people and animals?

  2. Sounds like man's habitat must take second place. Perhaps Leftists want the entire human population in the range of cameras so they can control, regulate and tax us even more…

  3. Thank you for this amazing story. i enjoyed it a lot

  4. Plant fruit tree in the forest so they won't need to go in town for groceries

  5. Canada sweet Canada 🇨🇦

  6. i live in the city. occasionaly i see a squirrel

  7. We need to arm the bears with assault rifles so they can force the invasive humans out.

  8. You really don't have to advertise if people don't pay attention let him run into a couple of hungry cougars or a Grizzly or two and you know then the morons will start waking up you always got to crack a few eggs to make an omelet terrible to say but people just don't care

  9. Am I the only one who feels bad for the wild life? I get that Humans have to take over everything and we have to "make way for wildlife" but it's sad.

  10. People looking for pokemon insted of bears XD

  11. Wow. Love to lived in this place. Love those beautiful animals

  12. I realize your concern. However, the world is constantly changing. We need to find a better way.

  13. This guy sounds like a dalek

  14. I love animals. God created everything so beautifully. Big bang is a lie

  15. >not just selling the animals cars and just letting them use the freeways

    Come on, people

  16. we should be hanging with em. our lifestyle of today makes us weak.

  17. GOES TO VISIT a friend 🙋‍♀️- Opens door 😲👉💬WTF there's a bear🐻 in there he watching tv 📺eating popcorn lol haa 🐌💬👉wot?
    got have a lol lifes too short kiddys 🙀🤪🐭🎈🎆

  18. It always comes down to a balace, however you get there, with minimal negative consequences.

  19. Nice one. just don't disturb and kill them.
    need more like this on all national park in this world, so we can coexist with fellow animals friends.
    i prety sad while some animals from wild go to someone house and they just kill the animals.

  20. These people are stupid and wasteful.

  21. If I ever come across one of these " biologists", putting a radio collar of any other tag on an animal, I'm gonna take it away and put it on said "biologist"

  22. For some reason Youtube has unsubscribed me to National Geographic…. what a crime! Re-subbed

  23. this guy's voice sounds like Saul from Better call Saul lol

  24. Great doc; thanks for sharing it, NatGeo. I loved the simplicity of the trash bin solution, taking advantage of bears not being able to rotate their forearms like us simians. Would've liked some explanation on what actions the Aversive Conditioning folks take if the bears they monitor stray too far into the red zones; will have to look that up.

  25. Amazing music, where can I find it?

  26. 17:50…f@ck you Dad!! My eyes are a looking AND why did you bring us??😳🙃

  27. How about you go run on a track why would you risk your life?

  28. Those people do not live in harmony with bears and other animals.

  29. That entire area should be some kind of preserve……..particularly in canada eh?

  30. Canada, worst babysitter government ever. You have to use imaginary pronouns to cater to the demands of mentally ill people or you can be arrested. Most evil nation on the planet.

  31. I suppose mount biking should be prohibited in those sensitive areas, were you are more likely to encounter bears. As mountain biking is more likely to result in in injury or bear attacks then for instance doing hiking. I have recently hiked in Jasper, and one particular trail was closed due to few injured cyclists because of bear attack.

  32. This park ranger @14:16 in the video should have his own show… he was fairly entertaining and informative.

  33. The community appears to be doing a great job. I noticed that as with most things problems occurred when individuals thought they were or should be the exception. People traveling in the dark where the animals were moving. It would benefit all if the the feeding areas were closed during the peak eating (to survive winter) season. Thank you for the video.

  34. I want to help build more of those corridors 🙁

  35. Of course Canada can coexist with bears, boring people aren't a threat to them

  36. Whats wrong with those people, lets avoid the trail all together,…its the wildlife territory,…I dont see a bear go to a mall and disturb your shopping…?!..

  37. Can I come live with the animals? I'm tired of humans

  38. 🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦💪🏼💯

  39. I'm starting to hate humans.
