Abstract:
The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission has initiated an in-depth study to determine why the state's black bear population is declining. In 1969, it was estimated that the statewide bear population was between 2,000 and 3,000, or about a fourth of the number 20 years ago. The study seeks to determine the distribution and abundance of black bears in North Carolina; the impact of changing land use on the bear's habitat; the effect of hunting on bear populations; and biological characteristics of the species that influence its survivability in the 20th-century.
