Facts about Polar Bears

  • Habitat is within the Arctic circle.
  • When hungry, a Polar bear eats nearly anything – also you!
  • This bear walks long distances for food.
  • Their skin is black.
  • Their fur seems white, and surprisingly it is transparent.
  • Largest carnivore on land.

Sea ice undoubtedly melts as a result of climate change. As the top hunters of the Arctic, sadly, their habitat is in decline. Therefore, also the number of Polar bears. These impressive animals are on the IUCN list, as many wildlife as a threatened animal.

    A wonderful black and white photo of the polar bear on the beach. The rocks, and the water, all compliments this majestic animal very well.

      We were lucky when this polar bear was walking on the beach. The sun gave us a great opportunity to do backlit images. Thanks so much, Thomas.
