Victor Watkins, WSPA Wildlife Advisor, is heading to the Republic of Georgia to attend the 2010 International Bear Association (IBA) conference and will be reporting back on the big issues faced by the world’s bears in a dedicated blog.
The IBA conference provides bear experts (organizations and academics) with a platform to share their knowledge of issues facing bears around the world, to encourage best practice and deliver solutions. Victor is extremely passionate about protecting bears from cruelty and suffering and has been a pivotal character in WSPA's work for bears around the world for nearly two decades.
