International Conference on Bear Research and Management

International Conference on Bear Research and Management

What a wonderful surprise! Instead of coming across a fossil while surfing at the office, this morning I found this conference that will be held in Thessaloniki this fall. It regards the interactions of humans and bears, and the conservation of species in today’s industries and economies. It also comprises a field trip to one of the most beautiful villages in Greece, Nymfaio, where ex-captive bears live (in the forest nearby).

Greek bears

A few months ago a couple of little orphan brown bears were released in the forest and are still beeing monitored to see if they are making it!
