"The Last Polar Bear: Facing the Truth of a Warming World"

From a press release:

"The Last Polar Bear: Facing the Truth of a Warming World" will be presented on Thursday, March 4, 7-8 p.m. in the Cook Auditorium at the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson. The program is free and open to the community with support from donations, large and small, to the Teton County Library Foundation.

Join wildlife photographer Steven Kazlowski as he shares his portfolio of slides capturing the polar bear in its wild arctic habitat. The presentation is based on his book, "The Last Polar Bear" (February 2008, Braided River) and traveling exhibit now on display in the library gallery.

Kazlowski is the only wildlife photographer to date who has extensively photographed the Alaskan polar bear and its critical Arctic coastal habitat, something he wishes to continue throughout the international Arctic - an area rapidly being affected by climate change. His compelling images present a range of perspectives from the anthropological to the scientific and the political to the indigenous. National magazines from Audubon to Newsweek have published his pictures.
