Browns, whites, blacks

The bears of Canada

Presented from January 21 until April 24 2023

This exhibition highlights these fascinating beasts admired by man for their strength and cunning, but also feared for the same reasons. These mammals capable of standing upright have long been considered as the doubles of humans and the kings of animals. Hunted and humiliated to the point of gradually disappearing from certain regions of the globe, the lord of the forests and ice reveals the secrets of his sensitivity to the disturbances of his environment. You will discover the conflicts of the cohabitation between man and bear and how the bear has become a true symbol of nature conservation.

This exhibition was produced by the Musée du Fjord, in partnership with the Zoo sauvage de Saint-Félicien and the Musée amérindien de Mashteuiatsh, and was made possible by the financial support of Canadian Heritage.
