Visiting Peru’s Spectacled Bear Project
Shivani recently traveled from Kenya to Peru where she spent several unforgettable days with the Spectacled Bear Conservation (SBC) project. She was greatly impressed by their team’s dedication to conserving South America’s only species of bear.
Read Shivani’s account of her time in the mountains searching for the enigmatic spectacled bears, while also learning about SBC’s programs that range from bear habitat and dietary research to community livelihood development. Their team (including Felicita pictured above in her amazing hat) was incredibly welcoming and demonstrated a unique bond, which no doubt contributes to their success.
Although an ocean apart – and working on notably different species – both Ewaso Lions and SBC share some interesting similarities. Click the link below to find out more.
