This Web Site was developed by Isaac Goldstein and Denis Alexander Torres to offer to the interested public, general information about the spectacled bear (Tremarctos ornatus) obtained in Venezuela during the last fifteen years of continuous work. This conservation effort has been possible thanks to the main financial support provided by The Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), Lincoln Park Zoological Gardens and Cleveland Metroparks Zoo.
