ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - Researchers within Virginia Tech’s College of Natural Resources and Environment are learning more about Virginia’s Black Bears in a new way. Professor Dr. Kelly Marcella and masters student and research assistant Brogan Holcombe strapped GoPros to bears to learn more about their daily lives.

They joined us Wednesday on the WDBJ7+ Digital News Desk (above) to share their research and answer your questions!
