NBC Nightly News Features Polar Bears & PBI
NBC Chief Environmental Affairs Correspondent Anne Thompson braved the cold and joined us on the tundra near Churchill, Manitoba, last week to learn about polar bears and climate change. Her story, "Climate Change Threatening Polar Bears in Canada," aired last night on NBC Nightly News. It includes interviews with Dr. Steve Amstrup, our chief scientist, and Dr. Tom Smith, a maternity den specialist.
Here's the link in case you missed it. It includes gorgeous footage of the polar bears as they wait for freeze-up and insights into their behavior and what the future holds.
