Over the last week, a video has been making its way around the internet — Polar Bear: Spy on Ice. Shot mainly using spy cameras, this film gets closer than ever before to the world’s greatest land predator.
Icebergcam, Blizzardcam and Snowballcam are a new generation of covert devices on a mission to explore the Arctic islands of Svalbard in Norway. Backed up by Snowcam and Driftcam, these state-of-the-art camouflaged cameras reveal the extraordinary curiosity and intelligence of the polar bear.
Watching this footage is funny, intriguing and at the same time bittersweet. Polar bears are losing their arctic home — searching for ice in a place that used to be covered in it. If we want to ensure that polar bears still roam in the arctic, we’ve got to take action. It’s up to our generation to do what’s right and save these majestic and iconic animals.
