My presentation is about an animal that has paid for our disconnection with nature. Because we are so fearful of the grizzly bear, we have used many excuses to kill them. It has only been recently that we have begun to appreciate how wonderful they are. For hundreds of years, man only saw them as ferocious killers, impossible to share land we occupied or ranched. Observing closely, I saw a peace-loving animal who wanted to be social. However, every time they tried to get along with people and share “our land”, they paid for it with their lives. The more I studied them I realized that we could trust them to live near us without danger, as long as we were not dangerous to them.
