We’ve Just Returned From Our Arctic Ecology Field Course in Churchill, Manitoba

November 18th, 2010

We encountered the beautiful as well as the disturbing in terms of human impact on polar bears & their habitat. We came away with a better understanding of polar bears and the threats they face, not only in terms of global climate change, but also in terms of industrial tourism, food-conditioning, and habitat degradation.

Two of our travelers have their own websites with photographs and stories. See mytraveltales.com and jeremybears.blogspot.com

And catch GBF’s pre-show trailer, written by member, Colette Weintraub, at theaters across the country showing Kidtoons family matinees for the month of December! The December show will be Curious George: A Very Monkey Christmas. For more info on Kidtoons, and to find a theater near you, visit Kidtoons. Thanks to Colette Weintraub and Cinedigm for supporting the Great Bear Foundation and our work to conserve polar bears and their habitat.
