Acoustic Tagging Chilko Sockeye

Acoustic Tagging of Chilko Sockeye Salmon Smolt

Technology brings wonderful advances to science and one of the greatest new gadgets is Acoustic Transmitters (or tags). What makes them so great?  It allows scientist to track our fish and identify migration patterns.  It allows us to learn about our wild fish, how they travel, where they go, and more importantly what we can change in our own environment so we don’t get in the way of theirs.

Identifying a Grizzly Bear

This is a fantastic picture taken by Josh Reimer during one of our Grizzly Bear Photography trips.  This photograph clearly identifies this bear as being a Grizzly Bear. The large hump of muscle and fat on the grizzly's shoulders easily identifies the Grizzly from a Black Bear.  The large muscle is used for digging roots, flipping large boulders, or other large objects; Black Bear do not have the large hump.
