Bears still need protection in Florida; habitat loss is greatly affecting Florida Black Bear populations. Nearly 20 acres of wildlife habitat are lost to new development every hour in Florida, and motor vehicle accidents that have accounted for 89.5% of deaths since 1994.
We ask the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to find non-lethal methods to coexist with bears. Keep protections for the black bear and do not include hunting in the management plan.
