Travel Video of the Week: Polar Bear POV


The US Geological Survey created this unique video when they put a camera-equipped radio collar on a female polar bear in the Beaufort Sea in April 2014. This new type of camera technology was developed by videographer Adam Ravetch with the support of the World Wildlife Fund. The video, which is the first ever from a free-ranging polar bear on Arctic sea ice, shows the bear interacting with a potential mate, playing with food, and swimming at the water’s surface and under the sea ice. The footage will be used by the US Geological Survey in research to understand polar bear behavior and energetics in an Arctic environment with declining sea ice.
