Richard Ellis talked about his book On Thin Ice: The Changing World of the Polar Bear (Knopf; November 17, 2009). He argues in the book that the extinction of the polar bear does not have to be inevitable. He explains the reasons the U.S. government refuses to list the polar bear on the endangered species list and why he believes that decision must be reversed. After a talk, illustrated by slides, he responded to questions from members of the audience.
Richard Ellis is a marine conservationists and marine artist. His books include Imagining Atlantis and Tuna. He has also published articles in Audubon, National Geographic, Discover, Smithsonian, and Scientific American. close
