- A Bear’s Beauty Pose Photo
- An Andean bear strikes an (unknowing) pose as it walks by a camera trap set up in Colombia’s Parque Nacional Natural Chingaza. These remote cameras help WCS researchers like conservationist Isaac Goldstein working with the National Parks Unit (PNN) to monitor and conserve the elusive bears, and identify individuals. Through studying these photos, conservationists can also determine if a bear is traveling alone or in a pack, and where each individual's territory is located.
WCS has been studying Andean bears since 1976 and is at the forefront of research and conservation activities happening throughout the bear’s range.
