Starting this summer, the informative exhibition “Los osos de Arbolio” that the Fundación Oso Pardo (FOP) maintains permanently next to the Valporquero Cave, in León, incorporates three information panels on the LIFE Bears with Future project.The panels explain, with the support of visual elements, how climate change impacts the lives of Cantabrian bears, and what actions the LIFE project is developing to help the species adapt to this new scenario. The central panel houses a monitor on which the animated video «Advices for visiting the mountains of the brown bear» is projected, produced as part of the project, executed by The Glow Animation Studio, from the Glow production company.
The exhibition is free of charge and is located in the adjacent facilities associated with the Valporquero Cave.
