Polar Bears have been a big topic when it comes to climate change and anything related to the Arctic as they are one of the most effected by these changes. According to the canadapolarbears.com Polar bears have been researched dating back to the 1960s and researchers today have become more knowledgable of our Arctic Companions.
Polar Bear populations have been fluctuating due to climate change and prey availability in the arctic ecosystem and due to the human factors of Hunting, Oil spills, and other such activities. For these long lived bears being able to reproduce is to replace any individuals in their population is extremely slow and very limited.
Thats not all there is an Organization that gathers news and data about Polar Bears and educates people about them. They have made it their mission to protect and conserve this species of bears from threats and to further learn about their habit, and ecology.
So if you want to learn more about Polar bears go to Polar Bear International.
