"Barely Making It: A Conversation With ‘Eight Bears’ Author Gloria Dickie"

"Gloria Dickie is an award-winning journalist who has documented the state of the world’s eight remaining bear species in a compelling new book, “Eight Bears: Mythic Past and Imperiled Future.”

 Despite the conservation gains made by iconic bear species like the giant panda and the brown bear, most bear species remain at risk.
 In this podcast conversation, the author shares the context behind why some bear species, such as the Andean bear and the polar bear, which face climate-related threats, are much harder to protect.
 “It’s quite tricky for bears threatened by climate change and not just habitat loss,” she says on this episode."
