The legend. The Icon. The bear.

An endearing piece of pure Americana, Smokey Bear has been the beloved face of wildfire prevention for over seventy years. His decidedly stern “Only you” admonishment and belt-buckled blue jeans are as much a part of our cultural lexicon as Abe Lincoln’s beard and bald eagles.

The story behind Smokey’s ambassadorship dates back to a 1944 wildfire in the Captain Mountains of New Mexico that nearly claimed the life of a black bear cub. Severely burned and newly orphaned, the cub was rescued and nursed back to health. Images of the tiny bear and tales of his harrowing adventure swiftly gained nationwide attention. “Smokey Bear,” as he had come to be known, was pledged as the figurehead of the US Forest Service’s conservation efforts and given residence at Washington D.C.’s National Zoo.

Thereafter, the bear that was very nearly consumed by wildfire has served as the inspiration behind the wildly successful campaign for its prevention, and in doing so, imparted a legacy that promises to endure for many more generations to come.
