Polar bears are an endangered species due to the rapidly changing environment in which they live.

 

Polar bears live in the Arctic Circle region of the world. There are five countries in the polar region where the polar bears live. These are USA, Canada, Denmark, Norway and Russia. Significant polar bear populations are found in the Barents sea, Chuckchi sea, Beaufort sea and Kara sea. Svalbard, Baffin Bay, Hudson Bay and James Bay are also popular gathering sites for the bears. These countries have a special interest in the survival and protection of the polar bear.

 

The polar bear is also called the sea bear as it basically lives on ice in the Arctic sea. It is also called Nanook by the local Inuit population. It is also called the white bear. Its official scientific name is Ursus Maritimus. There are efforts underway to sign agreements to protect the polar bear from commercial trade in its body parts. There are still people out there who hunt the polar bear for profit. The best way to protect the polar bear is to ban all international trade in polar bear body parts.
