Bear Safety Video

The Living with New Jersey Black Bears DVD includes 60-minutes of video on the biology, habits and management of black bears in New Jersey, Arkansas, Florida and New York and steps the public can take to better coexist with black bears. The DVD also contains a 15-minute segment, which can be viewed below, devoted solely to the management of black bears in New Jersey.

The videos on this DVD explore the growing national challenge of sharing the landscape with black bear populations and was developed with scientific input from wildlife experts. The DVD represents the state's continuing effort to educate New Jersey residents about co-existing with black bears and responsible management of the state's black bear population.

The DVD production was jointly financed by the NJDEP's Fish and Wildlife in partnership with state fish and wildlife agencies in New York, Florida and Arkansas, plus the New Jersey State Federation of Sportsmen's Clubs.

Free copies of the DVD are available to New Jersey residents (limit of one copy per household). Please use the online order form to request a copy of the DVD.
