Polar Bear Specialist Group - PBSG

In September 1965 a scientific meeting was arranged at the University of Alaska in Fairbanks. This was the first major scientific gathering with the primary task to discuss conservation measures regarding one species, the polar bear (Ursus maritimus). This forum was three years later officially established as the IUCN Polar Bear Specialist Group (PBSG).

The official PBSG web site was upgraded in 2009. A rusty old FrontPage site was re-created and extended as a custom built OpenCms site, developed and hosted by the Norwegian Polar Institute.
