Geoff York’s career trajectory has taken him from a pure research position at the United States Geological Survey (USGS) to a more general role working across the Arctic. Currently, as part of Polar Bears International, he is involved in funding research programs, policy work, and advocacy. The organization has grown significantly over the years, expanding its reach and impact. However, when discussing the state of polar bears and the impacts of climate change, Geoff admits to being far from optimistic. The constant flow of bad news highlights the urgency of the situation and the challenges ahead in protecting polar bears and their Arctic habitat.
