How do energy companies, who drill for oil in the wilderness make sure that they are respecting the land and the animals? “Grizzlies are frequent visitors in our fields and our goal is to ensure that they can safely coexist with the people working in the area[,]” says Robyn McGhee, Supervisor, Sciences and Sustainable Development Alaska.
ConocoPhillips works with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game and has funded grizzly bear research. The benefit is twofold: ConocoPhillips is able to maintain operations and reduce the number of bear encounters, while mitigating their impact on local bears. Meanwhile, ADF&G is able to use these opportunities to study the bears, learning about migration patterns, food habits and genetic analysis. In the words of Michael Scott: a win-win-win.
