Vermont’s black bear population is thriving. In fact the population is estimated to over 6,000 bears in the Green Mountain state. The growing bear population is no accident. For years the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department have been staunch protectors of critical bear habitat. However in recent years some of this habitat is being threatened. To better understand how ridgeline development impacts the black bear population a long-term study has begun on the site of a future wind project in southern Vermont.
