The Friends of the LPONWR Present:

Polar Bears-
Reliable projections in the face of uncertainty

Polar bears have been described as the Canary in the Coal mine of global warming, and they are the first species in the US to be listed as a threatened species because of projected habitat losses due to global warming. Do you wonder how this is happening? Do you have questions about global warming and its affects on wildlife?
If any of these are true, or if you just want to see some great pictures and learn some things about the great white bears of the north that have captured the human imagination through the ages…

Join us for our Winter Program

with Dr. Steven C. Amstrup, Chief Scientist for Polar Bears International who has done research on all aspects of polar bear ecology in the Beaufort Sea since 1980
Dr. Amstrup will give a talk about polar bears and a summary of global warming and its effects on them. After his talk there will be an informal discussion and question/answer session. You will be able to meet and talk with Steve about and discuss his life with the bears. If you have questions or uncertainties about global warming and its effects on polar bears or other ecosystems, you will have opportunity to bring them up and engage in informed discussion.
