Reader Mary informs me that Explore is hosting a live polar bear cam, or several (there are four live views). These are apparently on remote-controlled vehicles, and you can watch the bears here. So far I haven’t seen a bear, but there appear to be operators zooming around. I’ll post a screenshot when I see an ursid. The best hours for viewing, it says, are between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Chicago time (six hours later in Britain).
Remember, see these magnificent creatures while you can, for humans are killing them by changing the climate. When the sea ice goes, so go the bears.
