Rescuing the Spectacled Bear
A Peruvian Diary
Stephen Fry's wonderfully funny and moving diary of his bid to rescue Peru's endangered Spectacle bears, as seen on BBC TV
On New Years Day, BBC 1 broadcast a programme about Stephen Fry going to Peru to track Paddington Bear's roots and more seriously to rescue a Spectacled bear, one of the world's endangered species. At Easter a follow up programme was shown on BBC 2, they went back, and helped rescue a mate for the young bear they had found on their first trip. This is Stephen's diary of his time in spent Peru. It is packed with lovely colour pictures of Stephen, bears and Peru, and it is, of course, wildly funny. Stephen Fry is set to become the Diane Fossey of the bear world.
