Polar Bear Portrait
Polar Bear with a bloody face after a fortuitous out of season meal of seal. Polar Bear (Ursus maritimus, which means “sea bear”). This bear has had nothing substantial to eat for 8 months and he is waiting for Hudson Bay to freeze over so he can hunt for seals during the northern winter on the arctic ice. Adult male polar bears weigh from 775 to more than 1,500 pounds, 350 to more than 680 kilos. Polar Bears are endangered due to global warming. It is estimated that the Churchill population will be unviable in 30 years, and it is the largest single Polar bear population in the world. Polar Bears are to Global Warming/Climate Change what canaries were to mining.
