Bear Trust is launching a new program called “We Brake for Bears” as a way to help reduce bear mortality due to vehicle strikes. Partnering with Mississippi Wildlife, we are beginning our program in the Lower Mississippi River area where the Louisiana black bear was recently delisted. Our plan is to then take our “We Brake for Bears” program on the road (so to speak) and bring it to every region across the US.
We’ll be updating this webpage soon with more details as we move forward with this important program. Stay tuned!
