Beartrek is a conservation story wrapped in an adventure. Follow renowned biologist Chris Morgan, whose larger-than-life presence and palpable passion for wildlife led him on an epic and entertaining journey across 71,982 miles on three continents where he tracked and documented populations of the world’s most elusive and endangered bears.
Meet the bears and the biologists who dedicate their lives to saving them: Spectacled Bear in Peru (Robyn Appleton), Polar Bear in Canada (Nick Lunn), Sun Bear in Borneo (Siew Te Wong), and Brown Bear in Alaska (Chris Morgan). Through the eyes of a passionate team of filmmakers, ecologists, and scientists, the film explores the threats facing bears in the wild, the terrain where each species plays a major role in supporting the environment, and the dedicated people racing to save them from extinction.
See how each of the rare bear species is given a chance to thrive and join the campaign to protect bears and their habitat.
