Discover how humans and brown bears are increasingly coming into contact in the forests of Turkey in this set of videos from the NATURE mini-series Animals with Cameras. Humans are encroaching on the bears’ natural habitat, forcing them too close together. Even worse, bears have begun feeding from garbage dumps, chewing on barbed wire and raking through burning coals. For an in depth exploration of how humans have struggled to co-exist with wild animals, see the lesson plan Human Impact on Wildlife.
