Description:The bears on the webcams are part of a long-term study of black bear ecology and behavior being conducted by the North American Bear Center near Ely, Minnesota. Its mission is to advance the long-term survival of bears worldwide by replacing misconceptions with scientific facts about bears, their role in ecosystems, and their relations with humans.

There is much content on the site that explains how The Bear Center is working to conserve bear habitat, stop poaching for bear body parts, rehabilitate injured and orphaned bears, and find methods to reduce conflict between humans and bears. Some of the explanations are graphic. Parents (as always) should preview the content to determine suitability for their own children.
