Anyone who has surprised a black bear in their backyard is aware of the overlap between human and bear habitat. Conservation scientist Dr. Rae Wynn-Grant will share insights into black bear behavior and ecology, and provide advice on what we can do to improve relations with our ursine neighbors.

In her position at the American Museum of Natural History's Center for Biodiversity and Conservation, Wynn-Grant studies the movement patterns and behavior of black bears with the goal of guiding peaceful human-bear coexistence.
