Back to the Events

The only bear species to be considered marine mammals, polar bears make their true home on the sea ice. This programs covers the remarkable adaptations that allow polar bears to survive in the extreme and unforgiving Arctic environment. Through some icy activities, students will get to experience how these adaptations, from special fur to unique feet to layers of fat, have enabled these sea bears to become the largest land dwelling carnivore in the world! The presentation ends with a discussion on what a warming ocean means for these animals and how our actions can make a difference in the lives of our polar bears!
