The northern polar region comprises the Arctic Ocean, which is covered with pack ice, and the northern parts of the continents of North America, Europe and Asia. Numerous animals, but also we humans, have adapted perfectly to a life in the cold. This is the home of the polar bear, the „King of the Arctic”. As a skilled prededator, he hunts seals on the pack ice. But the king’s kingdom is melting and climate change is to blame. How do polar bears live and why are they so endangered?
Your professor for the workshop will be Mrs. Barbara Post, Ph.D at the University of Innsbruck.
