Advancing Bear Care 2019

A Bear For All Seasons

The Bear Care Group is pleased to announce our 2019 Advancing Bear Care conference in Scotland, UK 9th –13th October, in partnership with the Five Sisters Zoo and the UK Bear Husbandry Group. The conference theme is ‘A bear for all seasons’ where we will be exploring the impact of time and geography on bear husbandry. The conference will explore the importance of seasonality – in the literal sense such as in the seasonal management of our temperate bear species, and also across the species as we explore excellence in both temperate and tropical bear husbandry. Registration details will follow soon – please join us and consider submitting your own work within this theme, for presentation at the conference!
