Protecting                     our wildlife

Living in Boulder Colorado definitely has it's perks! It's not just the beautiful scenery that is right in our backyard, it's the wildlife that is everywhere and sometimes literally right around the corner.

 

I got a call from my friend Ora Goldman, who is also our founding member of 1 Act a Day and she said "Eric, get your video camera and come right away!" Fortunately I lived right down the street and I was there in a few minutes. We walked a few blocks from her home and to my amazement there was an adolescent black bear that was napping in one of the neighbors trees. There was a small crowd of people who were pretty amazed too, and all of us were watching with equal parts astonishment, awe and very honestly excitement and fear.

 

Ora and I were very lucky to have one of the volunteers of the Bear Care Program there, and he was very gracious to provide us with an interview. From this interview and the video that we created we learned some very important things to keep our wildlife protected, and very simple 1 Acts that each of us can do to keep our wildlife and ourselves safe. 

 

Bear Care Program

A file explaining the city’s strategy about bears and all the things they have tried and how well they did or didn’t work. It is a very interesting read with implications well beyond bear care.
