A Good Mother (mothers day special!)
Polar bears have gained a lot of attention due to dwindling habitats caused by melting snow and ice in the Arctic region. In the next video, you’ll see how snow and ice are a major part of raising cubs: from helping to conceal their lair for a 5-month long hibernation, to enabling them to hunt and catch their meals.
It’s rough early going for the newborns. About half of polar bear cubs don’t make it through the first year.
