The Government of Nunavut, the Word Wildlife Fund (WWF) and Parks Canada have partnered to develop a new comprehensive Polar Bear Guard training course that will help further reduce polar bear-human conflicts in the region. “We have a shared interest in ensuring that people living and working in Nunavut can safely co-exist with polar bears,” said the Steve Pinksen, acting Deputy Minister of Environment for the Government of Nunavut.

“The new course will provide trainees with the necessary skills to help protect Nunavummiut and aid in the conservation of one our most valued species.” The Government of Nunavut’s bear deterrence program works collaboratively with communities, the WWF, industry, other government departments and individuals to significantly reduce the number of bear-human conflicts.

The new training resources will focus on the protection of people, property and polar bears through the use of proven detection and deterrent methods.
