Polar Bear Population Projections: Reliability in the Face of Uncertainty

Join the Cleveland Museum of Natural History for an Explorer Lecture with Dr. Steven C. Amstrup, Chief Scientist & Vice President for Conservation Science with Polar Bear International.In 2007, Amstrup?s research team at the US Geological Survey projected that by mid-century we would lose 2/3 of the world?s polar bears. More recently, he and his colleagues showed that preventing polar bear extinction is largely a matter of controlling greenhouse gas rise. The good news is that prompt mitigation will prevent much sea ice loss and preserve sustainable polar bear populations over a majority of their current range.
