How do bears learn, problem solve, communicate, and respond to their environment? Join us at Advancing Bear Care 2013 - Understanding Bears to explore the cognitive and physical needs of captive bears, and learn how to provide stimulating complex natural environments to meet those needs.

Some of our compelling speakers are;

Dr. John Beecham - Bear Rehabilitation Research
