How to live with grizzly bears without getting eaten

The object of TEDxCanmore speaker Steve Michel’s affection is a rather unusual choice — one of the most notoriously feared animals in the natural world. He calls her grizzly bear number 64, and she lives with her cubs in Banff National Park where Michel is leading a team to educate people about living in harmony with wildlife. 

What we interpret as aggression, he says at TEDxCanmore, is often self-protection. For example, grizzly bear number 64 brings her cubs to the edge of a golf course not to scare us (as we might assume), but to keep her cubs safe from stronger, meaner bears (as any good mother would). In this fascinating talk, Michel explains how a little understanding can make these feared creatures seem as a sweet as the Berenstain bears.
