Old-growth forests provide a safe sanctuary for black bears in our province. Unlike new-growth trees, the bases of old-growth trees make perfect bear dens. Dakota Bear Sanctuary is an ancient forest that is home to populations of black bears that need it to survive. If these trees are logged, the black bears will go with them. The Living Forest Institute and The Only Animal are doing their best to stop it.
