Scientific Feast For Polar Bear Studies
Dr. Todd Atkins and his team from the U.S.G.S. are studying the rapid environmental change in the Southern Beaufort Sea, and its correlation to the declining health of the polar bear population of the area.
Investigate the problems facing a unique population of polar bears due to climate change. At the heart is an extraordinary event - the annual gathering of up to 80 polar bears on Barter Island in the Arctic Ocean each September.
This show is not scheduled to air soon.
