Summer bear surveys conducted far and wide

As the days grow shorter and temperatures begin to drop in the mountains, CCCP partner groups are making the final push to collect noninvasive genetic samples from bears throughout Washington’s North Cascades Ecosystem. Thus far, we’ve collectively deployed nearly 200 corrals, the barbed-wire devices used to snag hair from visiting bears. The map below shows our efforts for this year (pink dots), as well as the locations for black bears genotyped from samples collected over the past three summers (orange dots).
