PRUDHOE BAY, AK – The U.S. Geological Survey strapped a camera on four female polar bears necks to see what life was like while living on the Arctic sea ice in Alaska.

The cameras were on the bears for about 10 days and captured everything from their eating habits to mating rituals.

Scientists want to learn how the animals’ behaviors are impacted by sea ice conditions.

They also want to understand the potential effects of a changing climate.

This bear’s-eye-view and polar perspective is pretty cool….literally!
