Polar Bear Live Chat: Moms and Cubs and Buggy One!

Join us TODAY, Saturday, October 25th at 1:30 pm CT (11:30 AM Pacific/2:30 PM Eastern) for an Expert Live Chat on the Polar Bear Cams, a tour of Buggy One and a talk on bear mothers and cubs.

Tune in as Polar Bears International gives you a tour of Buggy One and explains how they get so up close to polar bears. Stick around for Alysa McCall, PBI’s field programs manager, interviews Wes Larson, Brigham Young University graduate student, about what it’s like to study polar bear moms and their cubs in northern Alaska. Find out what makes this group of polar bears so special and how scientists are using new technologies in the Live Chat this Saturday. Post your questions in the comments section here and join the Q&A with Alysa and Wes.

Did You Know? Polar bears often have twin cubs, yet they have one of the slowest reproductive rates of any mammal. Learn more about these giants of the north and their offspring.
