Have you ever been asked to babysit bear cubs? Sierra Hall has. She was 15 at the time, working as a student bear guide in her territories and the experience changed her life and solidified her work in conservation in her territories.
She was guiding a big group of tourists with a few colleagues on a week-long trip, she recalls over the phone, — camping, hiking, observing the same momma bear and her cubs for days. On one of the last days, the mother had gained trust from the group and brought her cubs over to them and left them to be watched over by the group.
“She left her cubs right in front of us… ten feet away… they didn’t come any closer, they just fished in front of us and she left them with us. She was getting us to babysit her bears,” Sierra says. “It was the most amazing experience. She knew we were there, she knew from the past days that other big bears stayed away from us, so she found protection in us and went to do whatever she needed to do and came back.”
