About the Author
Sylvia Dolson has been involved with the Get Bear Smart Society since 1996 and is now the executive director. Her passion for bears is equaled only by her quest to teach people about the true nature of these wonderful bruins. Her ultimate goal is for a greater coexistence—one in which people and bears live in harmony. As a naturalist, wildlife photographer and freelance writer, Sylvia chooses to spend much of her free time in the company of bears. Having walked among wild black bears, polar bears and grizzlies, she has gained an ever-increasing appreciation and understanding of all the wilderness and its inhabitants.
Sylvia is the author of Bear~ology: Fascinating Bear Facts, Tales & Trivia and A Whistler Bear Story. She lives with her husband, Steve, and their canine companion, Kia, in Whistler, British Columbia.
