Bear Safety ReminderBear Safety Reminder<div class="ExternalClass90163E0C34EC48CA9A147218DF935DFD"><p>Bears are now active and their movements are often dictated by food supplies. Bears are not picky eaters and will rarely pass up a meal even if it means going near humans to get it. Bears that become comfortable near people can be more dangerous to humans or may be destroyed. </p><p>To keep bears wild and visitors safe:</p><ul><li>Never feed a bear; do not leave any garbage or unattended food</li><li>Clean up garbage and food immediately; use bear-proof bins provided</li><li>Never approach a bear</li><li>Change your route or plans to avoid bears</li></ul><p><br>If you <em>see </em>a bear, stay back 100 metres. If you <em>encounter </em>a bear, stay calm and slowly back away.</p><p>Negative bear-human interactions may result in closure of some areas of the park.</p></div>TrueGP0|#66885332-dab0-4a55-9d4d-17832f70a58a;L0|#066885332-dab0-4a55-9d4d-17832f70a58a|Belcarra Regional Park;GTSet|#ef6bfa32-7824-496c-b2c2-24278fe7b36a
