Black Bear and White-tailed Deer are Oregon Natives: Learn about bears and how Oregonians can co-exist as humans increasingly move into wildlife habitat. Dave Immell has devoted much of the last 20 years to research on Oregon’s black bears. The Columbian white-tailed deer is designated as an endangered species across much of its historic range, but the southwest Oregon population is doing well. Learn how capture-and-release techniques have helped to recover the species. Steve Denney is the speaker.
