Times have changed since the days when visitors at Yellowstone National Park climbed onto bleachers to watch bears compete for trash dump scraps. As head of the park's Bear Management Team, Wildlife Biologist Kerry Gunther helped modernize Yellowstone's approach to managing its bears. A top priority is trying to ensure that bears and visitors don't hurt each other. Learn about grizzly bear behavior, resource management and educational techniques, and the challenges still facing park staff.
