Nature Live Online: The Spectacled Bear

Got a question?

You can ask questions while the talk is happening. Head to the video on YouTube and type your question into the chat box during the broadcast.

The Andes are inhabited by the only surviving native species of bear in South America, the spectacled bear - and it is sadly under threat, mainly due to habitat loss.

Join researcher Juan Camilo Chacón-Duque and find out about the efforts our scientists are putting into protecting this animal and its home in Colombia, and how the Museum's collections can help.

The Museum is closed but our work continues

We hope you share our passion for the Museum. We're continuing to connect people to nature by bringing the Museum to you through inspiring stories and educational activities. 

But the Museum is a registered charity and we need your help. With our doors closed, we're losing vital income. So if you could help us with a donation – no matter the size – we'd greatly appreciate it. Thank you.
