Polar Bear Emerging From The Arctic Willow
Polar bear, Ursus maritimus, which means “sea bear”. Male Polar Bear walking on the tundra in the Arctic Willow. This bear has not had anything to eat for about 8 months. He is waiting for the ice to freeze on Hudson Bay so that he can hunt for Harp Seals. 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.
