Why Become an IBA Member?
Membership in the IBA pays off for bear researchers, managers, and conservationists alike. The IBA offers connectivity with peers, professional meetings, publications, and updated information and news pertaining to bears and bear projects worldwide.
Membership entitles you to receive International Bear News, IBA's quarterly newsletter, and the journal Ursus. Ursus is a peer-reviewed journal that is published twice a year. It is the most comprehensive publication dedicated specifically to bear research and management, and is now also available online to subscribers of BioOne. Other membership benefits include some discounts during our international conferences, and voting privileges. Soon, IBA members will be given access to online discussion forums on bear-related topics.
