The Grizzly Bear Program is back from IBA 2016 in Alaska. It's a truly international conference that brings in researchers studying the 8 bear species around the world. Past conferences have been in Greece, India, and Canada.
Anja and Sarah gave talks on our citizen science project and grizzly bear movement research. Terry brought along a spiffy poster about how forest harvesting is affecting grizzly bear food. Gord went up early to sit on the pre-conference executive council and stuck around to soak up the science and meet fellow researchers.
Sadly we don't have a picture of Karine, who was also there repping the Caribou Program. She presented on how the resource selection of caribou, grizzly bears, and wolves can inform caribou management.
