The Black Bear, native to deciduous forests, is currently in a non critical condition towards their extinction. The reason why we added Yona, our black bear, in the game was to inform users about the impact we have on our forests, mainly wildfires. Here in The Smoky Mountains, we recently experienced a tragic wildfire in our own backyard. Thousands of homes were destroyed and millions were raised to help rebuild, however, not much was raised for the wildlife. Species like black bears habitats were completely burned down, causing them to leave the area, some never returning.
The best way that we can help prevent these creatures from being endangered would be donating to organizations like Keep Sevier Beautiful which will help rebuild their habitats.
