The Legacy of Bart the Bear-New Version
Bart the Bear™ was born in a zoo in 1977 and adopted by Doug and Lynne Seus and trained to be in films. The Seuses grand adventures with Bart took them from the Austrian Alps to the bejeweled backstage of the Academy Awards. Bart appeared in hundreds of films, including "The Bear", "The Great Outdoors", "Legends of the Fall", "Clan of the Cave Bear", and "The Edge", among others. He passed away in 2000. This video is a tribute to Bart, the Seuses, and the conservation nonprofit they created to protect habitat for wild grizzlies, The Vital Ground Foundation. Since its founding in 1990, Vital Ground has helped to protect and enhance over 416,000 acres of habitat in Montana, Wyoming, Idaho, Alaska, and British Columbia.
