Polar Bear Refuge (6) More files...
With increasing global temperatures the ice platforms that Polar Bears rely upon to hunt are literally melting away. A new study, however, from Kristin Laidre (research scientist at the Polar Science Center, Applied Physics Lab, University of Washington) et al reveals a remote population of bears in southeast Greenland who have adapted to life at the base of a glacier. Discovery of this population suggests both that such environments might serve as refuge for polar bears and that conservation of this new population is essential. We have a handful of images from this remote region recently supplied by Theo Allofs and Jami Tarris.
