Below is a video I created of the polar bears of Kaktovik, Alaska….
Safe with its mother, a polar bear cub shares a tender moment with its mama. Fearsome apex predators, polar bears are also capable of solicitous nuzzles and gentle behavior.
Currently polar bears (Ursus maritimus) are listed by the IUCN as Vulnerable.
Threats to their existence include hunting and loss of habitat.
