Chukotka will host the fourth International Scientific and Practical Conference "The Universe of the Polar Bear" from 28 to 30 September. Scientists from Russia and the United States will gather in Anadyr, but due to coronavirus restrictions - online.

According to the press service of the Chukotka government, the conference has been held since 2017. It is devoted to studies of the Chukchi-Alaskan polar bear population common for Russia and the United States. Scientists are also studying the experience of the relationship between a polar bear and humans, the activities of bear patrols. There is a session at the conference dedicated to the traditional knowledge of the indigenous peoples of Chukotka about the polar bear and its habitat. The issues of the state of the Mormlek population are considered separately.

As the head of the Department of Natural Resources and Ecology of the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug Alexei Yakovlev noted, Chukotka has the world's largest Chukotka-Alaskan polar bear population. And on Wrangel Island, conscientious research is often carried out.
