Brown bear in Turkey

The brown bear (Ursus arcturos) is distributed across much of northern Europe, Asia and North America.  Although there is a large population of brown bears worldwide, local populations are subject to significant fragmentation and decreasing numbers due to habitat loss, conflict and hunting.  Suffering in zoos and circuses, bears are often seen in captive situations.  Born Free is taking action to research Turkish populations of brown bear and stop the exploitation of bears in zoos anc circuses.
