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.

Event dates

We are open!

Entry to the Museum remains free, but since we closed our doors we've been losing vital income. Donations will help us to continue welcoming visitors and connecting people to nature through inspiring stories and educational activities. 

So if you could help us with a donation - no matter the size - we'd greatly appreciate it. Thank you.
