Can Bears and Humans Coexist?

Grade 6

Students from the small town in Cardston in Southern Alberta, 50 km East of Waterton Lakes National Park, studied if bears and humans might coexist.

Bears have been on thelandscape for thousands of years. However, due to expanding populations and increasing energy needs, the habitat of the grizzly bear has decreased drastically over the past century.

Certainly we are grateful bears are still on the landscape. Would we respect our wilderness as much and value its beauty as a place of hallowed solitude if the great bear was no longer with us? Would the forest ecosystem itself be effected by the loss of this amazing animal?
