Unity College will be taking part in a study with the Maine game department on black bears in Maine. Unity College was founded in 1965 and features excellent environmental programs. The multi-year study will involve both faculty and students.

The study will include the trapping, tracking and attachment of a video camera to a Maine Black Bear. According to the Kennebec Journal, Unity Associate Professor George Matula says state biologists have been studying Maine black bears since 1975. He adds that one purpose of the new study is to collect data in an area that is different from where the state has been collecting.

The trapping of bears will commence in May in areas including Dixmont, Benton and Troy. GPS satellite collars are planned to be placed on up to five adult female bears with one collar equipped with a video camera.
