        La Fundación Cordillera Tropical (FCT) is a foundation based in Cuenca, Ecuador that works to conserve the Sanguay national park- an area that has been misused and abused for hundreds of years. FCT works with the local land owners, reaching them on a personal level to create trust and understanding so they can reach a common goal. “This Is My Place" follows Armando who, in addition to growing up in the forest, works with FCT as a bear research technician- trekking for hours in the forest to set up and check cameras to document the status of the bear in the forest.

              Peruvian TV report, Cuarto Poder (Spanish) In recent decades, agricultural development and the growth of the human population in South America’s Andes Mountains has severely affected the natural habitat of the Andean Bear (also known as the Spectacled Bear or the Bear with a Marked Forehead), putting it in danger of extinction. It is considered a vulnerable species by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and is included in the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES).

                      According to wikipedia the best habitats for spectacled bears are humid to very humid montane forests. Generally, the wetter these forests are the more food species there are that can support bears. Although the bears can be typically found in the Andes mountains in South America above 1,900 m and even up to the mountain snow line, this specimen seems to look for a warm shelter in the snowy conditions of Vienna Zoo
