A decade ago, British ecologist and bear specialist Chris Morgan set out on his motorcycle to research and protect the world’s most recognizable omnivores. Beartrek documents his extraordinary journey. From the salmon-rich rivers of Alaska’s bush to the sere mountains of the Peruvian Andes and the lush tropics of Borneo, Morgan is determined to learn, understand and educate people about the health and the fate of bears, many of which are threatened. And whether it be the iconic and massive grizzly, the elusive and thin-limbed spectacled bear or the magnificent polar bear, Morgan finds the same basic truth: What’s good for bears is good for people, and the planet.
