In 2015 the Bear Conservation Fund supported 11 Research & Conservation grants and 1 Experience & Exchange grant (sloth bear-human conflict in India), totaling $71,000.00 USD. Our BCF Annual Report provides brief descriptions of what those grants accomplished. All of these projects took hundreds of hours of legwork in the field, searching for bear sign, interviewing and educating people, setting and checking traps and hair snares, monitoring radio-collared animals, and conducting vegetation surveys. All represent BCF dollars at work.
