Four fifths of a grizzly by Doug ChadwickPublished by Patagonia Books and available for purchase right here on Bear Mart (as well as also through your local bookseller), this collection of linked essays carries the full title Four-Fifths a Grizzly: A New Perspective on Nature that Just Might Save Us All. That unique perspective began with Chadwick’s childhood hours behind a gifted microscope and has grown through his career as a writer and conservation biologist. From giant grizzly bears to the invisible microbes living on our own skin, Doug details the interconnectedness of all life forms and how our own species might turn around its destructive ways through a better understanding our inseparability from Nature.

Doug has been a champion of wildlife far beyond the written page, having served Vital Ground as a trustee for much of the organization’s 31-year history. He currently chairs our Lands Committee, playing an integral role in our vision and strategy for conserving crucial habitat that reconnects the Northern Rockies’ wild strongholds for grizzlies and all things wild.

We can’t wait to hear Doug’s reflections on Four-Fifths a Grizzly and his thoughts on the future of conservation. He will speak via a Zoom webinar, with time for a brief question-and-answer session afterward. Please join us!
