    About This Project

    In summer, grizzly bears climb mountains daily in Glacier National Park to dig up and eat thousands of fat-filled army cutworm moths from talus slopes. My graduate research will improve our understanding of grizzly bear foraging for this food resource. With crowdfunding support, I will repeat sample talus slopes to determine whether moth abundance over time explains grizzly bear use. I predict sites with less variation in moth abundance will likely be more used by bears.
