Bears of the World (Worldlife Discovery Guides)
Bears have inspired humans for thousands of years. We have celebrated their power and wildness from early cave paintings to the naming of constellations. This vividly illustrated portrait of bears describes the history, behavior, and habitats of all the world species: the grizzly, polar, American black, Asiatic black, sloth, and sun and spectacled bears, as well as the giant panda. It also takes a practical look at the complex issues of bear conservation, and highlights what individuals and organizations can do to help preserve a healthy future for these majestic creatures.
