SWS and WWF are proud to present a new exhibition:
"BEARS AND US"
Following the huge success of "Meeting the Bear", which was seen by around 20,000 people at 50 venues in 2005-2009, we have prepared a new exhibition about Europe's largest land-based carnivore.
"BEARS AND US" presents informative facts about bears in an entertaining format. The wealth of photographs is supplemented with a Powerpoint presentation, educational film and plaster casts of bear footprints. A series of attractive banners contain information on what bears eat, why they hibernate and what threats they face. Like its predecessor, an important aim of this exhibition is to explain how problems between bears and people can be reduced, by protecting beehives and crops and learning how to avoid the riskiest situations as well as what to do if we meet a bear.
The content of the exhibition is based on the authors' own practical experience in Slovakia as well as on the advice of the world's leading experts on bears and bear safety.
You can see the exhibition at the following venues:

To borrow the exhibition the cost is €10 for the first week and €5 for each subsequent week. The price includes lending a DVD of the film "Staying Safe in Bear Country" and as a present you will also receive a set of teaching materials "In the Tracks of Bears" for work with pupils, which is yours to keep. When borrowing the exhibition for at least three weeks we will cover one-way delivery of the exhibition by post or in person.
You can also request a presentation with our expert, who will talk about his experience, news from global research and show items such as casts of footprints or a skull. We also organise creative and educational activities for pupils focused on bears and other carnivores.
