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.
