When you visit Fairmont Hot Springs Resort please be aware that bears live in the area.
In BC, it is an offence to feed or leave out items that will attract dangerous wildlife like cougars and bears. Food conditioning occurs when a bear learns to feed regularly on human food. Rehabilitation and relocation are ineffective. According to the Government of British Columbia 'Bear Smart' nearly 950 black bears and 50 grizzly bears are being destroyed in BC every year! We can help prevent this tragic loss of bears by stopping them feeding on our food and reducing the learned behaviour of lingering around our community.
