Dr. Steven Amstrup, senior scientist of Polar Bears International and the 2012 winner of the Indianapolis Prize, would be a fascinating guy to talk to. Well, now you have your chance when he appears on two live, interactive webcasts on October 2. The first at 1pm is aimed primarily at school students, but the 7pm version is wide open for groups and individuals around the world - anyone who cares about what's happening to polar bears and wants to speak with the man who knows how to stop it.
Dr. Amstrup's webcast is titled, "Can Polar Bears be Saved? A Conversation with Steve Amstrup," and it will be broadcast from the TV studios of Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana, via the web and on selected PBS stations, and livestreamed on the Indianapolis Prize website. Comments and questions for Dr. Amstrup during the program can come via email, text, Twitter or Facebook - it's easy and fun to interact in real time with one of the world's iconic field conservationists.
For groups, you can register in advance just by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
For everyone, and especially teachers, you can get more information and curriculum materials designed for this program on the Prize website. Tune into this page on October 2 at 1pm and 7pm for the live streaming of the show!
