Google Street View Visits Polar Bears In Hudson Bay

Google and Polar Bear International teamed up to document the plight of Polar bears in Hudson Bay. This is the most southerly population and is most affected by the melting of sea ice. You can read about my recent trip to and reflections on Hudson Bay. See more Polar Bear and other wildlife photos from Hudson Bay and the high Arctic by visiting my website

Exciting Polar bear photography. Great video as well. PB can be the canary in the coal mine when it comes to global warming.

I love Polar bears and your photos really bring them close up for me. Thanks but sadly, people still hunt them for 'food' and sports. A sickening thought when they are the most endangered bear species.

Thanks Jan. Yes, the warming of the Polar ice cap is having an impact on the Polar bears, especially the southerly population in Hudson Bay. These magnificent animals cannot adapt to the changes quick enough. It took them about 4 to 5 million years to evolve to their present form. PBI, Google Street View and anyone concern enough for our planet and Polar bears must get the news out and inform the public of the impending danger.
