When does the project run?


More information needed!

How long can I stay?


None. You do not need to be a scientist or have any special qualifications - everyone can take part and there are no age limits whatsoever.

Ability to walk about 10 km, sometimes when it is hot and often in broken, steep, mountainous terrain. There are also options to conduct surveys on mountain bikes and to get involved in non-strenuous activities, ranging from data entry to camera trap maintenance.

Details of the day-to-day life on the project:

This Swedish bear citizen science expedition will take you to the picturesque and quintessentially Scandinavian countryside of Dalarna province in Sweden to help study and protect the local brown bear population. Working in small teams, in flat or gently rolling hill terrain of heath, forests and wetlands, you will find and document bear winter dens and summer day beds when the bears are away (you will be able to tell this from their GPS position or collar signals). Detailed knowledge about dens and denning behaviour is important, because it helps to avoid human-bear conflict and provides important population, reproductive and other ecological information that is critical for successful bear conservation.
