Bears in the forest: What goes on when you are not there…

Watch more with these video collections:

As a part of their research on wildlife population distribution, animal activity and key biodiversity hotspots in Kananaskis Country, Alberta, Canada, the Alberta Parks team set up a motion-sensitive camera to see what happens in the forest when humans aren’t around.

So what goes on when you are not there? As it turns out, it’s mostly about bears scratching their backs.

Related watching: the Explore.org live bear cam in Katmai National Park, Alaska. And with over 1000 videos in the archives, you can be assured that there are more bears and more trees somewhere around here.
