Blaine Anthony, AKA The Bear Whisperer, host of The Bear Whisperer television show, travels throughout North America in search of the most dangerous and misunderstood big game animals.Considered to be one of the only “true” bear conservationist employing real conservation methods such as tagging, tracking and maybe the most important conservation efforts of all, hunting.
Bear ConservationEvery Winter I am lucky enough to join the Maine Bear Crew, a group of hardy and athletic biologists who have been studying the Maine Black Bears for more than 35 years, and aid with their conservation efforts.
At this time of year the sows with their cubs are hibernating. The purpose for the trip is for many reasons, but it gives the state of Maine a general idea of how the bear population is doing. We check everything, the condition of the fur, the general heath of the bears and are able to add any new bears we encounter in the study area as well.
