The Asiatic Black Bear Restoration Program Gallery

The South Korea national park service under the Species Restoration Center is conducting an aggressive program to reintroduce viable populations of the Asiatic black bear (Ursus thibetanus ussuricus) in the Jirsan Mountains. The Asiatic black bear is one of the eight bear species existing around the world. The Asiatic black bear was once common in the Jirsan Mountains until its population was driven to extinction through over-hunting.
