Black bears are the most abundant and widely distributed of the three bear species in North America. These bears are creatures of opportunity, with feeding habitats dependent on food availability. We work with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game each year to remind Anchorage citizens that garbage must be secured in proper bear-resistant containers to prevent bears from having access to it. These efforts will keep black bears wild and humans safe in bear country.
