VIDEO OF THE WEEK: Lou Jost, co-founder of WLT partner organisation, Fundación EcoMinga sent us this Spectacled Bear video taken in January 2012. This footage was caught on camera trap by a thesis student studying the bears, with the help of Juan Pablo Reyes (EcoMinga's reserve manager) and Luis Recalde, one of their rangers who is currently being supported through WLT's Keepers of the Wild programme.

Spectacled Bears are listed as vulnerable by the IUCN Red list due to habitat loss and fragmentation, poaching. More research is also needed about their distribution and status. EcoMinga's reserve protect many other vulnerable and endangered species including many endemic orchids, Mountain tapir and Giant Antpitta.
