Bears are respected and admired, yet also feared. These mighty animals have virtually no enemies except for humans. Over the last 150 years, bears have been displaced from their natural environment, hunted for sport, and traded in the black market for body parts. This book traces the major projects and people around the world who are active in the conservation effort to help bears in North and South America, India, China, Europe and the Polar regions. Illustrated with 50 colour photographs, the book also covers the issues and challenges involved in preserving a future for endangered wildlife. "The Firefly Animal Rescue" series promotes endangered and threatened species and what is being done to protect them. Each book introduces readers to a featured animal, explains the threats it is facing, and explores efforts by conservationists and organisations to protect it.
