||WILM To Air Documentary About Black Bears
WILM will air the NC Wildlife Resources Commission’s documentary about black bears on May 15th.
WILM will air the television debut of the NC Wildlife Resources Commission documentary about black bears on Sunday, May 15, 2005, at 2pm. The Bear Facts, The Story of a North Carolina Treasure is a 30-minute documentary featuring the black bears in the state.
The 30-minute documentary took three years to produce. The NC Wildlife Commission’s black bear biologist Mark Jones wrote and directed the film.
The documentary focuses on five segments including the history and biology of black bears, research and monitoring, co-existing with bears, hunting traditions and the future of black bears in North Carolina.
“This is a great educational opportunity for the Wildlife Commission because it’s going to be televised during sweeps week, and we have been granted an excellent time slot,” said Jones. “Not many people know that there are more bears in eastern North Carolina than in the mountain region. About 7,000 of North Carolina’s estimated 11,000 bears reside in the coastal plain, making our documentary very important to viewers in the Wilmington area.”
