The Alaska organizing committee is excited for the opportunity to host bear professionals from across the world as they come together to present their current research and management efforts and discuss conservation efforts for bear species throughout their global range. The IBA conferences are such a valuable opportunity to learn from each other and develop collaborations and partnerships for the benefit of bears. It is our honor to host your conference and we look forward to greeting you in Anchorage. We also hope you take the time to explore some of the beautiful and amazing sights Alaska has to offer during your visit.
The conference is open to the general public with registration; a series of free community talks will take place each evening of the conference. An interactive listing of general audience events can be found here. For complete details (and as the conference schedule solidifies) visit the conference website.
