Didier Grossemy is a wild bear protectionist based in Canada. Having worked in Alaska for the last 20 years with Polar bears he is now located in Ontario looking after Black Bears.

Black Bears are one of the most important animals in the Ontario ecosystem. Black Bears are an intelligent, very adaptable animal with enormous appetites and a biologically programmed instinct to eat whatever they can find, wherever they can find it. Their primary role in nature is to ensure that nothing is wasted. Black Bears have the ability to eat anything that is edible by any other animal. The range of food that Black Bears eat changes significantly throughout the year and includes animals which died over the winter, fish spawning in the spring and fall, nuts and berries during the height of summer, insects and grubs when and where they can find them, and any animal which they can kill without endangering themselves. It is very important to recognize that Black Bears are classified as a carnivore because they kill and eat other animals. Nuts and berries are significantly available for only 1-2 months during the year. The other 6-8 months that Black Bears are not "hibernating" they must eat fish, insects and other animals to survive.
