The Speaker: Mike Orlando

Mike is the Assistant Black Bear Program Coordinator for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. His responsibilities include implementing an overall approach to reducing human-black bear conflicts and managing black bear populations statewide.
He also provides support to FWC staff and outside partners with the resources and training needed when dealing with bears. Mike has a Master's degree on black bear ecology, and has worked for FWC for 15 years.

The Program:

Mike has provided the following outline of his presentation:

"The population recovery of the Florida Black Bear is a success story. The bear population has increased to more than 4000 statewide, up from between 300 to 500 in the 1960s and '70s. However, more bears and more people on the landscape, leads to human-bear conflicts. What can people learn about bears and securing attractants to reduce these conflicts? Come and find out."

This topic is sure to be interesting and informative.
