One More Day to Go!

The Tundra Buggy Cam will be live for one more day before the bears head off onto new ice for seal hunting.

“Polar bears need a platform of sea ice to reach the prey that sustains them: ringed and bearded seals. But not all sea ice is equal: some sea ice lies over more productive hunting areas—and some ice regions will melt sooner than others in a warming Arctic.

Scientists have identified 19 populations of polar bears living in four different ice regions in the Arctic.” Keep reading about Polar Bears & Sea Ice at PBI, and learn about why global warming is rapidly endangering polar bears.
