Bear Research, Education, and Conservation Center
The WSU Bear Research, Education and Conservation Center is the only grizzly bear research center of its kind in the United States. Prior to establishment, both federal and state biologists responsible for understanding and managing wild grizzly bears occasionally wanted to use captive bears in their studies. Few zoos have the resources or sufficient numbers of bears to obtain meaningful data. The WSU Bear Center meets that need.
