The Southwest Alberta Grizzly Bear Monitoring Project is a three-year pilot project between Alberta Fish and Wildlife, Parks Canada, Alberta Parks, and the University of Alberta, designed to non-invasively monitor grizzly bears both locally and at ecosystem scales.  The project takes advantage of natural bear behaviour - rubbing. Bears rub on trees and other objects as a form of communication, leaving behind hair samples - and their DNA.
