The video of a family of polar bears looking for sea ice

Sea ice is essential for polar bears to survive, but finding it has become more and more difficult. Watch the video of a family of polar bears relentlessly looking for it.

Polar bears need sea ice to survive. To find it, they can swim hundreds of kilometres. However, over the last few years, this research has become harder and harder due to melting ice, one of the effects of climate change due to global warming.

In the video called Polar bears – The quest for sea ice a family of polar bears is filmed while swimming in vain, until it approaches the coast, completely with no ice though. The video has been released on GoPro’s YouTube channel, after the release of the results of a research conducted by biologists of the United States Geological Survey to observe the life of polar bears from their perspective.
