Michael Proctor has come face to face with more grizzlies that he can remember, and he always lives to tell the tale.

Dr. Proctor will share his insights into the habits and habitats of this iconic species. His stories show how their future will be shaped by the decisions and actions we take today.

About Michael Proctor, PhD

Michael Proctor is a renowned grizzly bear expert.

Michael Proctor is a renowned grizzly bear expert.

Michael Proctor is a renowned grizzly bear expert and the lead Canadian researcher in the Trans-border Grizzly Bear Project. He works with the South Selkirk grizzly bear population, a small and threatened group of approximately 45 bears that roam the mountains around Nelson and Creston in BC's West Kootenay. NCC's Darkwoods Conservation Area forms an important part of their home range, and Michael has been catching bears to outfit them with radio collars since 2006. Knowing where the bears go — and where they don't go — is critical to guiding efforts to protect habitat for these magnificent and ecologically important creatures.

Get a taste of Michael's storytelling chops as he shares his secrets for how to catch a grizzly.
