Streaming icon

In this video from Nature, guide and host Chris Morgan travels to Anchorage, Alaska to observe the increasingly close and sometimes uneasy co-existence of humans and black bears. While not particularly aggressive, black bears have proven all too adaptable to urban environments and are increasingly common within the city limits, testing the limits of what people in Anchorage are able to tolerate.

This video is available in both English and Spanish audio, along with corresponding closed captions.

Learn about air pollution in Alaska, in this video segment adapted from KUAC. Hear from Matthew Bean, a Yup’ik Eskimo, who describes how the once clear blue skies have become less transparent, and from bush pilot Dennis Miller, who describes how the haze looks from the air. In addition, learn about the research of Glenn Shaw, the first scientist to study Arctic haze, and examine how the long-range transport of particles around the globe brings pollution to the Arctic. Finally, consider how Arctic haze may be contributing to climate change.
