The film chronicles this bear’s travels while digging into the dilemma of human coexistence with an increasingly emboldened wildlife population across North America. Blending humor and hard hitting facts, the doc includes a range of perspectives from a wildlife biologist, zoo curator, veterinarian, cub rescuer, park rangers, hunter, Cape Cod nature writer and a Provincetown entrepreneur.
“This film is jam-packed with urgent facts that are presented in an effective and memorable fashion. It is appropriate and interesting for a broad audience. Galvin respectfully acknowledges all life – human and wild.”

“The United States is fortunate to have many wild species, unlike other countries and territories in the world. We must conserve and protect these species for future generations and for the health of our habitat. We need to take the responsibility upon ourselves to help keep wildlife wild!”

“As we continue to alter the landscape, humans and wildlife will be in increased contact. We can alter our behaviors to help mitigate the emergence of disease, or we can do things that are likely to exacerbate disease transmission. Hopefully the film will get people to think proactively about the relationship between humans, animals, and the environment.”
– Christopher McKinney, MS, DVM (Doctor of Veterinary Medicine)
In May 2012, a black bear altered the course of Massachusetts wildlife history, completing a journey from the mainland to the tip of Cape Cod. The first bear sighting in centuries captured the imagination, attention and hearts of everyone from locals to tourists, law enforcement to TV crews and Tweeters all hoping to catch a glimpse or even capture the elusive bear himself.
The film examines conservation with a focus on the conditions that lead individuals to participate in environmentally sustainable behaviors, thus assuring the continuity and health of wildlife and our shared landscapes.
“We were pleased to screen Cape Cod Bear at the 2013 Animal Behavior Society Film Festival. Cape Cod Bear (The Film) blends humor and hard-hitting facts in ways that illuminate the intersection of conservation and human behavior, and that deftly draw the viewer to an appreciation of the need to sustain our wildlife and shared landscapes.”
