From March 15 to 17, the Chukotka Autonomous Area will host the 6th Polar Bear Universe International Research and Training Conference: 2012–2022 Research Results and Plans for the Future. At the conference, scientists will discuss the results of polar bear research over the past 10 years, as well as share plans for future studies. The event will be held via video conference between Anadyr and Moscow.
“In particular, the conference participants will present the results of recent, unique research that used drones to study the habitats of Chukchi-Alaska polar bears, the world’s largest polar bear population,” the organizers say.
The conference focuses on the study and protection of the endangered polar bear. It will also cover environmental policy, the socioeconomic development of the Arctic, adaptation to climate change and vital activity safety in the Arctic zone of the Russian Federation.
