Scientists Release Video Clip Filmed from Neck of Polar Bear

As part of a study to help scientists understand how polar bears are responding to loss of sea ice, the U.S. Geological Survey has released a clip of video shot from the neck of a polar bear.


In April scientists placed cameras on four female polar bears roaming the Beaufort Sea ice north of Prudhoe Bay.


The study was led by research biologist Anthony¬†Pagano who said in a release the information will help scientists understand the bears’ nutritional demands and energy expenditure in the context of less sea ice.


The clip shows a bear entering the icy ocean waters, trying to eat a frozen seal and interacting with a male.
