An excerpt from CBC’s The Mercer Report, this video features Rick Mercer joining biologists at Algonquin Park on a mission to tag black bear cubs. Spectacular helicopter shots are included as Rick and the bear experts locate the sleeping bear’s den. After the mother is anesthetized the babies are weighed and measured. With Rick’s regular banter and wit, this entertaining and very informative video emphasizes the importance of habitat protection and the value of wildlife research.
While the video is particularly relevent to those courses that focus on wildlife it will provide an effective tool to initiate discussion on wildlife conservation in a range of subjects/courses. In addition to promoting stewardship the program provides students with an entertaining glimpse of potential careers in wildlife management.
