BEARS ‘A Global Perspective’

Fabled and feared, rescued and reared— bears, through time have experienced human impact, both negative and positive. Indeed, the current circumstance of these impressive creatures reflects our behavior, depth of understanding, and attitude towards them.

In this Special Edition we share the perspective of photographers, explorers, scientists and those dedicated to the conservation of bears and their habitat worldwide. Their stories and images reflect the diverse nature of bears, the vital role they play in the health of an ecosystem, their spiritual significance and reverence to native culture. These are but some of the aspects explored through first-hand encounters and expressive photos which capture intimate moments of bears in the wild.

Viewed through a global prism encompassing past, and present with expert insight on the future— we open a much wider window, into the world of bears.

Deepest gratitude to all who contributed, for enriching this issue with your knowledge and experience. You have helped provide a global perspective that I hope will raise awareness and support for our beloved bears.

    What a coincidence that you blogged about bears. Just downloaded it and can’t wait to get into it.

    But just wanted to share with you what I learned last Friday and its been haunting me every minute of the day. Have you heard about china and Vietnam’s bear bile farm practice? This is the single most cruel thing I’ve ever heard. They stick a tube into the the bear’s gall and leave it in there for multiple extractions a day, while the bear is alive and kept in cages so small they can’t turn for sometimes over a decade.
    I donated some money but there’s so little I can do. You may know the right organizations or more influence to have more impact on this. You can find out more here
