The Bears of SBC
This video shows footage of bears we have studied in our extremely vulnerable dry forest spectacled bear population.
NCI-SBC field exploration
We partnered with Nature and Culture International (NCI) to work with communities and protect spectacled bear habitat in high elevation montane forest and paramo in the northwest Peruvian Andes.
Cub eats pasallo
Spectacled bears have strong jaws to chew through vegetation, even the bark on pasallo trees in the equatorial dry forest.
Spectacled bears are excellent climbers with curved, sharp claws and long front limbs. They easily climb both trees and steep cliff faces in the equatorial dry forest.
This bear’s back is itchy! Spectacled bears also rub against trees to communicate with other bears by leaving a scent.
