Western Black Bear Workshops

The purpose of the Western Black Bear Workshop is to provide information relative to and encourage the perpetuation of bear populations as an ecological, aesthetic, and recreational natural resource in western North America consistent with other proper land uses for public and private lands.  Organizers of the triennially held WBBW strive to make it an attendee-involved, working meeting with specific goals.  These include: providing an opportunity for all persons interested in bears to meet and discuss current research and management of bears and their habitat by promoting cooperation among all agencies and organizations, particularly among the various provincial, state, and federal agencies with primary responsibilities of managing bears and their habitats; promote research for development of new information on all aspects of bear ecology, life history, and management in western North America; identify particular issues associated with bear management and to formulate recommendations and resolutions to the appropriate agency or organization, including the Western Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies; and to provide a vehicle for disseminating said research and management findings to various agencies and organizations concerned with bear management.
