tracking black bears
Wildlife ecologist and National Geographic Explorer Dr. Rae Wynn-Grant proves you can be a self-identifying "city girl" while pursuing passions in the forest. GPS-tracking, modeling natural habitats, and forecasting migratory patterns are all essential for her mission: studying black bears and their behavior around human areas. Rae exercises GIS tools in South Lake Tahoe where the locals--humans and bears alike--are learning how to safely coexist.
