Hi! My name is Lucile Fressigne.
I am a Biologist and I live in Mt Lorne, a community south of Whitehorse. I am directing a research project aiming at updating and providing a scientifically reliable estimate of the population size of Grizzly and Black bears in Yukon using a non-invasive DNA-based method relying on fecal samples. Grizzly bears are the supreme symbolism of wilderness in Yukon and are essential for the well-being of ecosystems. The Yukon is one of the rare places on Earth where Grizzly bears can still enjoy a large wild territory and we should all do our possible to protect them and their habitat.
