Wildlife biologist Doug Chadwick, author of numerous books and articles about natural history and conservation, and longtime resident of grizzly bear habitat in Montana, describes himself as a "bear groupie."  Ursos arctos gobiensis, a Gobi Desert sub-species of grizzly bear, is on the edge of extinction; right now, researchers have located just thirty individuals in the fabled 500,000 square-mile desert.
