Haines bear encounters have increased over the last year, often from bears going after residential food sources, such as chicken coops and fruit trees. Now a group of local nonprofits is offering to help residents pick their fruit for free. Shannon Donahue is the executive director of the Great Bear Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to conserving bears and their habitat. She says when bears can easily access food on someone’s property, they can start to rely on it.
