Using this tool, you can watch polar bears as they wait for the sea ice to form in the fall; after freeze-up, you can follow them on the ice, which they use as a platform for hunting seals. Our Bear Tracker shows current and past sea ice levels on Hudson Bay, along with the locations of polar bears (with a time delay for their safety). To understand the extent of sea ice losses in the Arctic, this video shows the formation and contraction of the ice over the past 30 years. Interested in sponsoring a bear? Learn more here.
Scientists emphasize that time remains to save polar bears and their sea ice habitat. Find out how you can play a role:
