    About This Project

    Fear of bears has gripped humans for centuries but no scientific effort has sought to understand how to negotiate encounters with wild bears. Field experience among professionals suggests that bears use vocalizations and postures to communicate their intentions and avoid conflicts with each other as well as humans. We hypothesize that by understanding their visible and audible communication signals we can develop a predictable and teachable pattern to communicate with bears.
