Abstract

Risk assessment of bear (Ursus spp.)--human interaction at river campsites is an effective tool for managing human use, but it only addresses 1 of many issues important for minimizing bear-human conflict along rivers. We suggest strategies to meet the objectives: (1) minimize risk to people and bears at river campsites, (2) ensure that bears do not become conditioned to human food, (3) educate people on ways to reduce their risk of negative interactions with bears, (4) ensure that agencies respond quickly and appropriately to bear-human conflicts, and (5) make human use of rivers more predictable to bears.
