Volusia County-FL-The black bear hunt in 2015 had many Floridians up in arms about how it was conducted. Another is possible in 2016. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission wants to answer your questions and get your input during three scheduled webinars.
The webinars will give the public the opportunity to discuss the FWC’s black bear management program. Topics to be addressed at the webinars include new bear population estimates, 2016 bear range updates, Bear Wise communities, results of the 2015 limited bear hunt, and input concerning a possible hunt in 2016.
The webinars will be held May 26, May 31 and June 2, each beginning at 6 p.m. EDT. Those interested in viewing the webinar must register for the session of their choice. Register by clicking here. Webinar coordinators request that interested individuals sign up for only one webinar to ensure availability for other participants.
A computer or telephone access are necessary to participate in a webinar. Those without a computer can listen by phone. Phone registrations must be made by calling 352-372-4747 and asking for Alexis Hampton.
