Bear Boxes in Yellowstone

Bear Boxes in Yellowstone

As the common saying goes, "a fed bear is a dead bear". Yes, it rolls off the tongue, yes, it's frequented on signs in the Parks, and yes, few maliciously have intent to harm, but it can't be understated nor taken for granted. Bears that gain access to human food eventually become more aggressive towards humans, and may ultimately need to be removed from the population.

Similar in the sense of familiarity and often underappreciated, Yellowstone's bear-proof food storage boxes in their roadside campgrounds improves visitor safety and prevents bears from accessing human food. We're proud of our 4 the Parks contributions to Yellowstone Forever's efforts to help fund and place more than 230 bear boxes in the park.
