Danish veteran, Arctic guide and traveller, Morten Jørgensen brings the reader a passionate analysis of the current status of the polar bear. In this eye-opening account, interspersed with beautiful photographs, the author argues that it is not only climate change that is a threat to polar bear survival but also the present management practices of the species are insufficient to protect them. He documents scientific data to show how management policies can be transformed to allow these creatures to survive. His urgent recommendations regarding hunting, trade, and bear refuges urge Inuit hunters, conservation institutions and governments to act before it’s too late.
