Coastal Grizzly Research Project
Progress Report, Year 4, 1985, Working Plan, Year 5, 1986Microform - 1986
The coastal forests of mainland British Columbia support some of the highest grizzly bear densities in the province, but logging in these forests apparently results in declines in the populations. A research project to identify seasonal habitat requirements, determine the impacts of timber harvest on the bears in the absence of hunting and determine the baseline population characteristics was initiated in April 1982. This report summarizes project progress for year four (1985) of a five-year study and outlines work objectives for year five (1986). The study is located in the Kimsquit watershed, about 500 km northwest of Vancouver. This report describes the materials and methods used in the study, as well as the results.
