Wanted: Habitat

Wanted: Habitat
Photograph by Robert Caputo

Yoda, with her trademark floppy ear, clings to a sapling. Though currently doing well in her established territory, she faces an uncertain future as both growing black bear populations and human populations vie for the same habitat. In some areas of New Hampshire feeding bears is as popular a pastime as feeding birds—often with disastrous results. Kilham, naturally, is sympathetic to the bears’ plight. “People are as fickle as the day is long,” he says. “They’ll love them today and put a bounty on them tomorrow.”
