Rae Wynn-Grant has dedicated her life to ecological research and conversation. As a scientist with National Geographic Society’s Last Wild Places Initiative, she works to protect and restore iconic wildlife populations, including North American black and grizzly bears. But when the wild lands of their habitat are crisscrossed by roads, fences, and ranches, how can bears and humans coexist peacefully? Dr. Wynn-Grant explores the answers.
National Geographic Live brings you behind-the-scenes stories, unforgettable imagery, and gripping footage from world-renowned photographers, scientists, writers, filmmakers and adventurers.
Co-Presented by Denver Museum of Nature and Science
