Her ultimate goal is for a greater coexistence–one in which people and bears live in harmony.

Having walked among wild black bears, polar bears and grizzlies, she has gained an ever-increasing appreciation and understanding of all the wilderness and its inhabitants.

Sylvia has been involved with the Get Bear Smart Society since 1996 and is now the executive director. She travels thoughout North America speaking at conferences and workshops. She has authored many reference materials for edicational purposes, maintains an extensive website, and writes a regular newspaper column. Other books include Bear-ology: Fascinating Facts, Tales & Trivia and A Whistler Bear Story.

My experience working with Fiona
Fiona was an absolute pleasure to work with. She is always ready, willing and eager to satisfy— no matter how many revisions are made at the last minute. Her creative design skills are apparent in the layout of our book. Do have a look. Her work speaks for itself. This is our second time having a book designed by Fiona and I look forward to working with her again in the future.
