6th International Human-Bear Conflicts Workshop

Pathways to Progress: Connecting People, Conserving Bears

Save the Date

The Human-Bear Conflicts Workshop dates back to 1987, when a small, dedicated group of agency bear managers, educators and wildlife specialists met at Yellowknife in the Northwest Territories to focus on finding ways to better understand and manage conflicts between people and bears. That historic gathering was the beginning of a new path forward for both species. The Organizing Committee for the 6th is hard at work ensuring that this workshop will be one of the most informative, interactive, inspiring and useful ever.

The workshop’s unique format is designed to encourage participation and provide lots of opportunities for interaction with professional and community human-bear conflict specialists. Attendees leave with:

  • A better understanding of the history, causes and current trends in human-bear conflicts
  • New and proven methods of reducing human-bear conflicts
  • Tools, techniques and tactics that work in the real world

Who should attend? Anyone involved with reducing human-bear conflicts on public lands, private lands and in communities, including field biologists and technicians, wildlife managers, community organizers, human dimensions researchers, conservation officers and the heads of government agencies.

Vendor and Sponsor Packages are available now on the website. Registration will open this fall. Calls for presenters and success stories will go out later this year.
