Discovery: The Secret Life Of Bears With Rae Wynn-Grant

Jan 23, 2023

60 Minutes

No Intermission


Dr. Rae Wynn-Grant is a large carnivore ecologist with an expertise in using statistical modeling to investigate how anthropogenic factors can influence the spatial patterns of carnivore behavior and ecology. In particular, she studies the ecological and social drivers of human-carnivore conflict, and the influence of fine-scale human activity on connectivity of suitable carnivore habitat. Her current field system is on the American Prairie Reserve in eastern Montana. She has worked on similar research questions with African lions in Kenya and Tanzania, grizzly bears in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, and has worked extensively with black bears in the Western Great Basin.
