These proceedings provide an overview of the ongoing research and management activities on polar bears in the circumpolar arctic. Together with the previous 12 proceedings, they provide an historic record of international efforts in protecting polar bears from over-harvest and document more recent concerns of threats arising from increased human activities in both the Arctic and in regions far beyond the realm of polar bears. More proactive management is needed to address limitations in the knowledge of population dynamics. New information indicates that the greatest future challenges to polar bear conservation may be ecological change in the Arctic due to climate change and pollution. The complex, global nature of the issues requires international cooperation and development of diverse, new approaches to address them.

The Essential Grizzly

To these they add unique portraits, sketches of real grizzlies from the viewpoint of the bear, along with the parallel human story of an actual encounter.

In May 2003, naturalist Charlie Russell, known for his close-up work with black and grizzly bears in British Columbia, returned to the site of his research with brown bears in Kamchatka to find his subjects missing and the gall bladder of a bear cub nailed to his cabin door. Upon further investigation, Russell and his partner concluded that between twenty and forty of the bears they'd been working with had been killed by organized poachers. Five months later, Timothy Treadwell and Amie Huguenard were spotted from the air by the pilot who'd come to pick them up from their campsite in remote coastal Alaska. They had been killed and eaten by the grizzlies Timothy had observed and lived with for thirteen years. Neither the bear community nor the international press knew what to make of these tragedies. Why the seemingly needless deaths of both men and bears? Especially disturbing were the deaths of Treadwell and Huguenard. Though death by wild beast today strikes us as utterly unexpected, humans have experienced this extreme form of animal interaction throughout the millennia of their evolution. Men and Bears explores these kinds of encounters, beginning with interviews--of biologists, mauling victims, hunters, native people, photographers--all kinds of people who have had close contact with grizzly bears. Doug and Andrea Peacock then wrap these human narratives in the universe of the bear, with the benefit of modern and traditional knowledge of bear behavior. To these they add unique portraits, sketches of real grizzlies from the viewpoint of the bear, along with the parallel human story of an actual encounter. Last, they provide the context of Doug's extensive experience in grizzly country, considered by many people to be the most authoritative in the world. The urban dweller's craving for these timeless, sometimes horrific, stories reveals an aching desire to understand our own place in the world and in the landscapes of human evolution--a wildness now vanishing before our eyes. Filling a gap in the literature, Men and Bears eclipses existing books on bear behavior, attacks, and how-to pamphlets, providing readers with a twenty-first-century context for revisiting the original shudder of Homo sapiens--the bear or the lion in the cave of our genesis--and finding a measure of familiarity and value there.

This book assesses Alaskan wolf and bear management programs from scientific and economic perspectives. Relevant factors that should be taken into account when evaluating the utility of such programs are identified. The assessment includes a review of current scientific knowledge about the dynamics and management of large mammalian predator-prey relationships and human harvest of wildlife in northern ecosystems, and an evaluation of the extent to which existing research and management data allow prediction of the outcome of wolf management or control programs and grizzly bear management programs. Included is an evaluation of available economic studies and methodologies for estimating the costs and benefits of predator control programs in Alaska.

Bears: Tracks through Time is an eclectic look at our relationship with these beautiful and sometimes frightful creatures with which we co-exist in the Canadian Rockies. As a result of our close cohabitation with bears, the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies has accumulated a modest collection of art, artifacts and archival materials related to bears. This book features images and stories from the collection. The postcards sent to us from the past provide a compelling glimpse into our changing views of bears. This is neither an exhibition catalogue nor an exhaustive study of bears, but rather an assortment of bear tales and the people, images and artifacts related to those stories.
