- Remembering Bears is the stunning seventh book in the Remembering Wildlife charity series- The aim of the creators is to make the most beautiful photographic book ever seen on a species and to use that to raise awareness of the plight facing that animal and also funds to protect it- Remembering Bears is full of images generously donated by many of the world's top wildlife photographers- All profits from the sale of this book will be donated to projects working to protect bearsRemembering Bears is the seventh book in the Remembering Wildlife fundraising series, which has so far raised more than USD $1.2 million for conservation. For the 7th book in the much-lauded Remembering Wildlife series, the organizers have chosen for the first time to leave Africa and to feature bears. There are eight species of bear: American black bears, Andean bears, Asiatic black bears, brown bears, giant pandas, polar bears, sloth bears and sun bears. There are fascinating differences between them, which have implications for their behavior, evolution and conservation. Their habitats range from forests to woodland, grasslands to sea ice and their behaviors reflect that too. From climbing to swimming, fishing to hibernation, their differences are intriguing and captivating and through stunning imagery this book will show that and also bring attention to the threats they face. Like all of the species we've previously featured in our series, the challenges bears face are all sadly, once again man-made. From climate change to habitat loss; and from hunting to the illegal trade in body parts, including the Asiatic bear bile trade, our impact threatens their very future on this planet. Remembering Bears will feature images from more than 80 of the world's best wildlife photographers, showing bears in their natural habitats from China to Peru, Alaska to Borneo.
A former PR in London, when Margot Raggett saw a poached elephant in late 2014, she was so moved by that incident, that she founded the Remembering Wildlife project. This was a 'live-aid' moment for wildlife photographers, coming together for a fund-raising book entitled Remembering Elephants. Such was the success of this book that it was quickly followed up by Remembering Rhinos, Remembering Great Apes, Remembering Lions, Remembering Cheetahs and Remembering African Wild Dogs with this title, Remembering Bears due for publication in 2022. So far, almost 200 photographers have contributed to the series under the banner of 'Wildlife Photographers United', selling more than 33,000 copies and raising more than USD $1.2 million for conservation projects in Africa and Asia.
