Video: A Polar Bear's View of the World
In April of this year, researchers attached video cameras to four polar bears in the Arctic. They have collected the first images from those cameras, and shared it with us online. The footage captures the world from the perspective of a polar bear, showing them swimming in the Arctic Ocean, finding a tasty meal, and encountering other bears. The project is designed to help us understand how the bears behave as their environment shrinks due to climate change, but mostly its just great footage of polar bears. That's worth it alone.
