Description

The Andean bear, also known as the spectacled bear, is sometimes called the Paddington bear, after the fictional bear in children's books written by Michael Bond. The spectacled bear is the only bear species in South America, and its numbers are dwindling. In Peru, the Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel, a National Geographic Unique Lodge of the World, has set aside land as a rescue center for the bears.

When you're a National Geographic guest at the lodge, you'll be invited to join an Inkaterra explorer guide on a private visit to the lodge's Spectacled Bears Rescue Center. Learn about the behavior and survival challenges of this rare species as you observe spectacled bears with local researchers, help with a feeding, and discuss rescue and rehabilitation efforts.
