The Polar Bears of Kaktovik, Alaska
August 14 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm| Free
Join Jennie Gosché, wildlife photographer and polar bear advocate, for a virtual trip to the Inupiat village of Kaktovik, Alaska, which sits on the edge of the Beaufort Sea and the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Jennie will share photos and her experiences of photographing the Southern Beaufort Sea polar bears in Kaktovik in 2016 and 2019. She will provide an orientation to polar bears, how they are being affected by climate change, and why Kaktovik is her favorite place in the Arctic to photograph polar bears.
Jennie has been a clinical social worker for more than three decades. In 2010, when she visited the Arctic for the first time to photograph polar bears, the trajectory of her life was changed forever. She founded Polar Bear Pals ®, an education and advocacy organization, in 2012.
