Rod Downie: Icons on Ice (EDINBURGH)

6th December 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

The Arctic is ‘ground-zero’ for climate change, and polar bears are on the front line. Yet, it is remarkable how little we actually know about these ‘icons on ice’. How many are there? How will they respond to dramatic ice loss? Rod, WWF’s Chief Polar Advisor, examines current understanding of these extraordinary animals, discusses what the future holds, and explains what working with big angry polar bears is really like!
