Pack Creek Zoological Area (PCZA) Brown Bear project

Brown bear at Windfall harbor on Admiralty National MonumentDuring the winter of 2005 we completed a Landscape-scale assessment of brown bear habitat with an emphasis on providing management guidance for recreation planning. This work was conducted at the Pack Creek Zoological Area on Admiralty island and is being used by Forest Service managers for long-term planning.

Southeast Chichagof Bear project

cheryl_recon_beartrail_treebb_smDuring the summer of 2005 we worked in cooperation with the Sitka Ranger District (USFS) on brown bear habitat assessments at several sites on Chichagof and Baranof Islands. The purpose of the field work was to collect high resolution habitat and signs of use data for a variety of wildlife and human use management questions. The areas surveyed ranged from pristine to highly modified watersheds and provided an excellent overview of existing brown bear habitat conditions on the northern Tongass National Forest. GIS analysis was blended with anecdotal naturalist observations in the final report.
