Black Bears: Understanding and Controlling Human-Bear Conflicts

Bears, behavior, and conflicts. Oh my! With our furry friends coming out of hibernation, Andy Timmins joins our education series to talk about population trends, common species misconceptions about bear behavior, and the many challenges that black bears face in their own habitats. Andy will also explore ways in which humans can reduce the number of bear-human conflicts happening in our communities.

Andy Timmins has worked at NH Fish and Game for 28 years and was recently promoted to Game Programs Supervisor. He has been working as a bear biologist since 2002, which has allowed him to educate the public on bears and work towards human-bear coexistence, a topic he finds imperative in wildlife management.

The annual Cottrell-Baldwin series is co-sponsored by the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests and the NH Division of Forests & Lands Caroline A. Fox Research & Demonstration Forest.
