Note from Bears Matter:  I am so looking forward to going to my third Advancing Bear Care conference this October since 2009.  On my return, I plan to post highlights of what I learn from this conference.  There is an outstanding list of speakers and participants from around the world that I admire and fully support in their work in bear conservation, research and education! Barb M.
