JP Bradette, chair of the Canadian Polar Bear Habitat board, spoke on CTV Your Morning today (November 29th) about the Habitat’s mission and future.
JP spoke about what makes CPBH unique, pointing to the huge amount of natural space available to the bears as well as the research opportunities available at the Habitat.
He described a current project in which our staff helped create the methods that will be used to measure the ears of polar bears in human care. Those measurements will be used to develop radio tracking devices for wild bears.
While there is no doubt about the CPBH ’s value as a research centre, there is currently a great need to secure funding for the Habitat. The council of the Town of Cochrane, where CPBH is located, has said it can no longer support the facility’s operational costs.
The CPBH is working on a number of exciting new initiatives that will require the financial support of corporate and private donors. We welcome the opportunity to share our plans with you and discuss how we can develop a mutually beneficial relationship.
