One morning this summer my husband and I went to Castle in the Clouds www.castleintheclouds.org for a talk on bears given by Ben Kilham. It was the second time I have heard him speak. The first time was at “The Libby” right after he wrote a book titled “Among the Bears”. Since then he has made two TV documentaries on bears for both the National Geographic and The Discovery Channel.
Because we had seen a bear in our yard earlier this summer we were interested in hearing more about them. Ben is the first person in NH that the state Wild Animal and Game Department gave a license to so he could actually keep bears that were orphaned and help them learn to survive in the wild. You can learn more about him here at the state site: http://www.wildlife.state.nh.us/Wildlife_Journal/WJ_sample_stories/WJ_b01_Bears_Kilham.pdf
or here at his own website: http://www.benkilham.com/Benkilham.com/HOME_PAGE.html
