Video recorded by a wild polar bear

US Geological Survey’s biologists attached cameras and radio collars to four free-ranging female Alaskan polar bears last April. One of the resulting videos shows one of the bears in action in the Beaufort Sea, checking out a potential mate, swimming below ice, and trying to eat a frozen seal (which is kind of gross.)

Female polar bears were used exclusively as the necks of male polar bear males are wider than their heads—so collars easily slide off.

The full footage will be studied to improve understanding of polar bear behavior amidst continuing concern. Populations of these ferocious predators are generally believed to be at risk as a result of habitat decline as sea ice melts due to climate change.

The loss of sea ice opens up larger parts of the Arctic Ocean to shipping and drilling for oil and gas. These activities are likely to add further stresses to arctic ecosystems already stressed by climate change.

For some animals, the disappearance of the ice might mean that they change their behaviors, but not all animals will be able to adapt. These animals will need to move, or they’ll disappear.

We must leave enough space around critical habitat areas for the animals that live there to survive the challenge of changing conditions.
