Bears inhabiting Polish Tatras live very close to humans. But sometimes they come too close. "Danka", along with her three cubs, try to use the rest of the food from unsecured trash. Filip Zięba from the Tatra National Park and Nuria Selva from the Institute of Nature PAS took part in the film material prepared by Renata Kijowska for one of the most influential Polish information programs, Fakty TVN. Once again they asked for proper protection of trash and for not leaving the remains of food in easily accessible places. They also highlighted the importance of the bears’ behavior research (eg. telemetry). We strongly recommend!,60/tatrzanskie-niedzwiedzie-podchodza-coraz-blizej-ludzi,781184.html [material in Polish]

The issue of climate changes impact on the biology and ecology of bears interested Polish information TV programme, "Teleekspress". TV editor Michael Hajdenrajch prepared material in which Dr. Agnieszka Sergiel and Prof. Nuria Selva explained how climate changes influence the behavior, physiology and diet of polar and brown bears. We recommend this short but very interesting material .(unfortunately only in Polish).

An interesting interview with Nuria Selva, leader of the GLOBE project, was published in one of the most influential Polish weeklies, “Tygodnik Powszechny”. Nuria talks about her research, about Puszcza Białowieska, about bears and about her perception of life. Truly interesting read (unfortunately only in Polish)!

Virginia Morell from wrote a note on a study on the behavior of mother brown bears in Scandinavia. Adult male bears are known to kill cubs that are not theirs—and sometimes the mother that defends them. A new study by the Scandinavian Brown Bear Research Project team, authored by Steyaert et al. suggest that brown bear females use humans as protective associates to shield her cubs from male attacks. Read that interesting story at

We recommend to all interested in the research on the brown bears a movie from the series "Dancing with Nature" realised by the TVP Nuria Selva, Tomasz Zwijacz-Kozica and Filip Zieba talk about what and how we study in, among others, the GLOBE project.

The incredible Iwo’s journey was an exciting experience not only for the bear, but also to Polish, Hungarian and Slovakian scientists, nature conservationists, and nature enthusiasts. The media cover on Iwo’s current whereabouts was impressive. Numerous links to the articles, press notes, social media releases referring to the Iwo’s journey from Poland to Hungary and back listed in our MEDIA section.

To investigate changes in the foraging behaviour of the Carpathian brown bears during the last few hundred years the GLOBE team was taking bone samples from recent and historic brown bear specimens from the various natural history museums and collections allover Europe, including the Natural History Museum in Sibiu

"International Bear News", a Quarterly Newsletter of the International Association for Bear Research and Management (IBA) and the IUCN/SSC Bear Specialist Group, in the latest volume (Summer 2014 Vol. 23 no.2) published a "News from the GLOBE – Disentangling the Impacts of Global Climate Change on Brown Bear Populations". We invite all those who want to know more about our project to read more.
