Loss of Arctic Ice Imperils Polar Bear Births


Loss of Arctic Ice Imperils Polar Bear Births

excerpt "...Loss of Arctic sea ice is linked to a decrease in polar bear birth rates in Canada's Hudson Bay, according to new research. If the trend continues, the polar bears in the region could be facing a population crisis.

Polar bear mothers retreat to a maternity den during pregnancy, never once emerging for food. An early spring ice breakup reduces the hunting season, and pregnant females aren't able to amass enough body fat to support them through their 8-month fast, when they must stay hidden in their dens to gestate their young and give birth...."

Scientists record a long-distance polar bear swim

excerpt "... ANCHORAGE, Alaska — On a summer day two years ago, polar bear 20741 decided to leave a remote Beaufort Sea beach. The 7-year-old, nearly 500-pound bear walked north into frigid Arctic Ocean water east of Barrow in search of sea ice. She swam. And swam. And swam. She covered 426 miles — farther than researchers have recorded a polar bear swimming without a break. After nine days, she reached pack ice and walked or swam another 1,118 miles, eventually looping south back to Alaska soil a few miles from the Canada border.

Researchers recaptured her after two months and learned her journey had come at an extraordinary cost. Her body mass was reduced 22 percent and her internal temperature had dropped. ..."

Rescued Kodiak Bear Cub Prepares for New Life in Sweden

Rescued Kodiak Bear Cub Prepares for New Life in Sweden

excerpt "... Kodiak bears are a large subspecies of brown bear, found only on the Kodiak archipelago off the Alaska coast. The population of Kodiak bears is considered to be healthy relative to populations of other brown bears, so there is no need to develop a breeding program. Consequently, bears orphaned on Kodiak are often left to their fate.

What follows is the story of a Kodiak bear orphan that was rescued, trained, and readied for location to the Orsa Grönklitt Bear Park in Sweden, where she and another cub, an unrelated male rescued on Kodiak earlier last year, will live their lives as ambassadors for their unique subspecies.

The saga began when the first cub lost his mother when she was killed in defense of property in a rural area 20 miles south of the city of Kodiak three months ago...."
