Guest Lecture: Polar Bears & Climate Change

6:30-7:45 pm - Weds. April 17 - VAC Room 1B20

Ian Stirling will deliver a lecture related to the history of these animals. He will share his research highlighting the negative effects of sea ice loss on polar bears, and the seals upon which the bears depend. Stirling’s presentation will include stunning photos. He is concerned that, “Climate warming is causing significant changes to the distribution and availability of sea ice at critical times of the year.”

Stirling will travel from Canada to deliver this presentation at CU-Boulder.
