In person with Ian Stirling

Nanuk, the Inuit word for polar bear, symbolizes the Arctic more than any other animal. Recognized as one of the world's leading experts on polar bears, Ian Stirling captivates his audience as he describes the natural history of polar bears, their annual cycle in western Hudson Bay, where fasting plays an important role, and how climate warming is affecting them in Hudson Bay and potentially elsewhere. In his 1998 book Polar Bears, he recounts his experiences in studying these magnificent animals, including the time he performed artificial respiration on a tranquilized polar bear for three hours after it had stopped breathing. Please join The Royal Canadian Geographical Society in welcoming Ian Stirling and his tales of Nanuk.
