Bear Expert To Speak On International Conservation Efforts

An international bear expert with strong ties to Yellowstone will give a public presentation on international bear conservation efforts on Wednesday night, September 19.

Harry Reynolds, III, grew up in Yellowstone. His father was a park ranger. At the age of 15, Reynolds began his lifelong association with bears by working with the Craighead brothers.

Reynolds recently traveled to Mongolia as part of an international team to study the Gobi Bears, a species of brown bear nearing extinction. His presentation will draw upon this trip and his 45 years of experience studying bears.

The presentation begins at 7:00 p.m. in the gymnasium of the Yellowstone Park School in Mammoth Hot Springs.

Reynolds appearance is funded by the National Park Service with generous support from The Yellowstone Park Foundation.
