Bears-in-Brisbane is a worldwide conservation group that got its start twenty years ago, in 1996, when several groups of concerned conservationists came together to protect an endangered species of Koala Bear which lived primarily in the area of Brisbane, Australia. The group was successful in that endeavor, and realized that it had become a very effective engine in the conservation movement. So the group elected a president, Darlene Long from Sydney, Australia, as its president, and began to look around for battles that it could join. In the past fifteen years, the group has joined causes all over the world, and has established offices in 31 cities on four continents. The group has also established its famous monthly Award for Conservation Awareness.
