When we are thinking of the northernmost region of Earth - the Arctic - what comes to our mind first? Of course, polar bears! Those animals have high adaptive capacity to the unfriendly, Arctic climate, and every meeting with them is an unforgettable experience.
During the lesson we will be discussing about the ways of polar bears adaptation to the climate, how they react to humans, and what kind of equipment is required when you are in the area of "polar bear kingdom" (we will focus on Spitsbergen, the main island in Svalbard archipelago).
Keywords: polar bear, adaptation, bear family, Arctic, apex predator.
