Regions of the Northern Forum, as a rule, know about bears not by hearsay - contacts between a person and a brown bear in or near settlements are not uncommon. In connection with the danger of injury and even life threatening, the Brown Bear Working Group is working to share experiences and create conditions to prevent the dangerous rapprochement of the bear with man. It is also a good opportunity for beginning biologists and environmentalists to join in the practical implementation of their work.
