“If a man has an apartment stacked to the ceiling with newspapers we call him crazy. If a woman has a trailer house full of cats we call her nuts. But when people pathologically hoard so much cash that they impoverish the entire nation, we put them on the cover of Fortune magazine and pretend that they are role models.”

 “Grizzly Man” Documentary

AnnouncementsFrom: The National Resource Defense Council
www.nrdc.org & www.savebiogems.org

You may have heard of the new documentary film, "Grizzly Man," directed by Werner Herzog, which opened in theaters over the summer. The film is an enthralling portrait of Timothy Treadwell, a controversial activist who lived for 13 years among Alaska's grizzly bears -- until he and his girlfriend were killed by a grizzly in 2003.

If you're interested in hearing the inside story behind Timothy and his extraordinary life in the wilderness, you'll definitely want to visit the NRDC Action Fund Blog. Louisa Willcox, a friend of Timothy's and one of the country's foremost experts on grizzly bear conservation, will be our guest blogger for the next few weeks…

Among other bear-related topics, Louisa writes in lively detail about Timothy and his legacy. Here's an excerpt from Tuesday's entry:

"I have seen friends, who generally agree on most things, battle over Timothy and what he meant, and I too have had my share of arguments with friends and colleagues. Was Timothy more a showman, a wannabe actor, playing more for the camera than for the conservation of grizzly bears?

Was he a 'bear whisperer' -- and if so, how and why did his luck run out? ... And there are bigger questions too: can humans integrate with bears and wild nature as Timothy tried to do? If we succeed, will that restore us to a sense of wholeness and peace? Or would we then become like wild animals and regress to barbarism?"

Louisa, who lives in Livingston, Montana, has worked to protect grizzly bears since 1985. She's currently fighting to prevent the "de-listing" of Yellowstone's grizzlies from the Endangered Species Act and to connect bears in the Lower 48 -- which depend on the wild ranges of NRDC's Yellowstone/Greater Rockies BioGem for survival -- to larger source populations in Canada.

I hope you'll visit us daily this week and next as Louisa writes about our simultaneous love and fear of grizzlies, her encounters with these bears, and the dangers they face from large-scale development, drought and global warming.
