They were doing it for something to do on the Pro-D day, Sept. 17.</p><p>Pirjo Raits photo</p><p>Education will reduce bear/human conflictsSharron HoSooke News Mirror </p><p>Sooke is now a part of the province-wide Bear Aware program, which has a man-date to educate the pub-lic on how to co-exist with bears. </p><p>We do live in a commu-nity where bears are here, so what are we going to do? We have to learn to live in conjunction with bears because we just cant shoot them all, and we cant just move them all, said Debbie Read, volunteer Bear Aware co-ordinator. </p><p>Since becoming estab-lished this spring, through Reads initiative, the local program has worked with BC Parks, local camp sites, resort establishments and the conservation service. </p><p>The operation works as an educational service, distribut-ing material like flyers, pam-phlets and bookmarks con-taining information on how to manage bear attractants.</p><p> She hopes to speak at schools and build a larger presence though commu-nity partnerships. </p><p>Were looking for addi-tional partnerships with community groups, local businesses and non-profit organizations, she said. We really want to get this out in the community. </p><p>According to the Bear Aware manual, the mandate of the program is to reduce the number of human-bear conflicts in communities through education, inno-vation and co-operation. It is an educational program </p><p>based on the premise that the reactive destruction of bears entering our commu-nities in search of food is not a sustainable or viable solution to the problem. </p><p>Prior to the Bear Aware program, Sooke did not have resources available to local residents who come into contact with a bear. </p><p>Theres at least 20 other communities that have lesser problems than we do here in Sooke, that already had Bear Aware co-ordina-tors, so we were long over-due, said Peter Pauwels, conservation officer.</p><p>Its going to be very, very helpful for us for the educa-tional piece because were so busy that its difficult for us to reach people. So were very glad and we hope its going to be a continuing thing. </p><p>Pauwels said since April 1, the conservation service has received 246 bear com-plaints in the Sooke area. </p><p>He said over the last three to four years, bear reports have increased significantly due to development. </p><p>Theres more people liv-ing in areas that used to be bear habitat especially in a place like Sooke. Youve got a combination of more </p><p>bears, more people, and less available habitat for them. </p><p>This year, about eight bears in the CRD region -- which stretches from up the Malahat to Port Renfrew -- have been terminated. </p><p>According to Pauwels, bears will be particularly active through the months of September and October as they fatten up on gar-bage, ripe berries and fruit for winter hibernation. The main attractants are gar-bage, chickens and fallen fruit. </p><p>He hopes residents will take the necessary precau-tions to manage attractants around their properties to prevent human-bear conflicts as there is no quick solution to a habituated bear. </p><p>People have to take responsibility to prevent problems from arising, thats the message every-body needs to understand, he said. Most people have the expectation that we can come and move the bear and that will be the end of their problem -- they wont have to change their behav-iour. Even if we did move the bear, theres going to be another one thats going to come right back if theres a food source available.</p><p>Pauwels added that bear relocations have a low suc-cess rate, with the Sooke Hills, Jordan River and Port Renfrew as the only viable options. </p><p>We have a challenge here, were on the tip of an island, theres not a lot of places </p><p>Continued on page 3</p></li><li><p>2 www.sookenewsmirror.com WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 2012- SOOKE NEWS MIRROR</p><p>PRODUCEPRODUCE5-A-Day for Optimum Health</p><p>PRODUCE</p><p>AD PRICES IN EFFECT SEPT 19 THRU SEPT 25, 2012</p><p>www.westernfoods.comSeniors Day Thursdays Save 10% on Most Items</p><p>Chicken Breast</p><p>DELIDELIHealthy Choices in our</p><p>DELI </p><p>Remember Your Calcium</p><p>DAIRYDAIRYDAIRYIsland Farms2% Yogurt 175 g .............................. </p><p>4/300Island FarmsSour Cream 250 ml ..........................</p><p>$129Island Gold Large Free RangeBrown Eggs 12s .............................</p><p>$479Kraft PhiladelphiaCream Cheese 250 g ......................</p><p>$349</p><p>SOOKE6660 Sooke Road</p><p>Open 7 Days a Week7:30 am to 10:00 pm</p><p>We reserve the right to limit quantities</p><p>SEATreats Treats From theFrom the</p><p>SEA</p><p>Your Community Food StoreYour Community Food Store</p><p>Lean</p><p>GroundBeef6.59 kg ..............</p><p>$299/lbFletchers Regular or Thick Slice</p><p>Bacon</p><p>500 g ................$499/ea</p><p>Butterball Turkey Bacon or</p><p>Wieners</p><p>375 - 450 g ..........$399</p><p>Fresh, Great Tasting Meat </p><p>BUTCHERS BLOCKBUTCHERS BLOCKBUTCHERS BLOCK</p><p>FreshSnapperFillets</p><p>Northridge Farms AAA Bottom</p><p>RoundSteak8.80 kg ...............</p><p>$399/lbFletchers Farmers Cut</p><p>Dry CuredBacon500 g .................</p><p>$499Johnsonville Smoked</p><p>Bratwurst &amp;
