VDGIF black bear radio-collaring project For the first time in over a decade, Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (DGIF) biologists will be radio-collaring adult female bears in Virginia. Data acquired through this project will provide new insights into the move- ments, denning habits, and home ranges of wild, female bears in unstudied areas of Virginia. Additionally, these female bears will provide a source of surrogate mothers for orphaned black bear cubs. Biologists are currently capturing bears in portions of the Shenandoah Valley and in southcentral Virginia. Adult females will be fitted with GPS radio-collars. GPS radio- collars are linked to satel- lites which transmit loca- tion data to the biologists. Approximately 10 collars will be deployed this year and another 10 collars in 2017. - Using wild, female bears as surrogate mothers for orphan cubs has been a successful practice in Virginia. Female bears are excellent mothers and will readily take orphan cubs. Each female bear will be visited by DGIE biologists in her winter den, and sur- rogate mothers will be given an appropriate num her of orphan cubs depend- ing on her condition, age, and the number of natural cubs already present. This exciting project is expected to continue for the foreseeable future, but deployment of the radio- collars will be rotated peri- odically throughout the state so that no one loca- tion or female bear will acquire orphan cubs over an extended period of time. While we hope that these radio-collared bears will provide several years of service to the Department's bear project, hunters may harvest radio- collared bears as long as all the bear hunting regula- tions are followed.
