Exciting polar bear cam b-roll USGS footage from the bear’s perspective from 2014, 2015, and 2016.
The USGS Alaska Science Center Polar Bear Research Project conducts long-term research on polar bears to inform, local, state, national and international policy makers regarding conservation and management of the species and its habitat. The USGS’s studies are primarily focused on polar bear population dynamics, habitat use, foraging ecology and health. The majority of their research is conducted on the Southern Beaufort Sea population of Alaska and neighboring Canada. One goal of their ongoing research efforts is to refine and enhance models to project the future status of polar bears in the rapidly changing Arctic environment. Some of this footage was acquired cooperatively with Polar Bears International and the World Wildlife Fund (Canada).
