Since I was a wee girl, there’s been no bigger thrill in my life than seeing wildlife. Bears have always had a special spot in my heart. I’ve dreamt about them for as long as I can remember. Sometimes in a fearful way, but mostly just that they are always around me. While bears are the most prominent, I love all wild creatures and hope that we humans can learn to value their role in our own well being more, so we can work harder to protect them.
