Bear Smart Resturant Program Overview
Whistler is home to over 50 black bears, it is extremely important that we learn to co-exist with these wild animals. Restaurants pose a great risk to bears if garbage and other attractants are not managed properly. On average, 9 bears are killed every year in Whistler due to human-bear conflict; this can be avoided by changing our actions.
