Group Description

The Bear Keepers' Mailing List targets a membership of bear husbandry professionals around the world. We invite anyone working with bears in zoological parks (public & private), sanctuaries, rehabilitation facilities, as well as academic laboratories to join. We also invite bear enthusiasts interested in husbandry and health programs for captive ursids. In addition to the links available on the group page, there are also resources available on http://bearkeepers.wordpress.com which cater to husbandry & training professionals, conservation managers, conservation educators, wildlife health practitioners and field researchers.

Although we address primarily husbandry, training, enrichment (behavioral & environmental), propagation, exhibit design, clinical medicine, preventive medicine, nutrition, hand rearing and sorta situ conservation research initiatives, we invite field researchers, naturalists, conservation educators and wildlife managers to join this forum.

We also have a page on Facebook dedicated to sharing links, photos and video. It also facilitates fundraising activities for bear related causes.
