A Bear Risk Assessment for Yukon Place

Scott Gilbert

A variety of government institutions share the campus of Yukon Place with Yukon College. The large campus lies within the City of Whitehorse adjacent to a greenspace that acts as a wildlife corridor following McIntyre Creek. The setting is unique and to our knowledge represents the only Canadian post‐secondary institution that shares an adjacent green space with grizzly bears and spawning Chinook salmon. Our report set out to document the extent of wildlife activity in the area and identify options to reduce human‐bear conflicts around Yukon Place.
