CPCESU GSENM Study of Black Bears of Paunsaugunt Plateau, Utah Project: This project is intended to provide an opportunity for an academic or non-profit research institution under the Colorado Plateau Cooperative Ecosystem Studies Unit (CPCESU) to fulfill their mission by increasing understanding of movements and habits of American black bears in Southern Utah. The recipient institution will study black bears in this region, including studying bear activity in relationship to human activities. Studies will be made to determine how to effectively keep bears out of places that human¿s camp and recreate as well as dumpster areas. Bears will be collared and tracked to determine where they spend time and where they den in the winter. This will provide the BLM and other federal agencies information for decision making and management of bear populations and to enhance protection of visitors on public lands. CPCESU Network is a national consortium of federal agencies, academic institutions, tribal, state, and local governments, nongovernmental conservation organizations (300 partners). The CPCESU unit works within the Cooperative Ecosystem Study Unit and is aimed at transcending political and institutional boundaries, to create innovative opportunities for research, education, and technical assistance in support of management and stewardship by partner agencies of the Colorado Plateau's natural, cultural, and social resources. The CPCESU has a unique collaborative relationship with research scientists, end users of research products, the public, and educators who are trained to bridge the gap between researchers, science users and educators. Objectives of the proposed agreement are: 1) to document the seasonal movements of black bears in Southern Utah; 2) to document bears' association with sources of anthropogenic foods in the area; 3) to provide annual reproduction and survival data for tagged black bears to the state wildlife agency for inclusion in their ongoing assessment of Utah black bear population dynamics; 4) to evaluate the efficacy of a variety of methods for aversively conditioning food-conditioned black bears; 5) to work cooperatively with state and federal agencies and institutions to minimize bear access to anthropogenic foods and educate the public regarding proper conduct in bear habitat. 6) to assist land managers in the area to develop/expand management strategies for black bear in back-country camping and high visitor use areas.
