Simon Leufstedt posted a topic in Wildlife and BiodiversityCheck out this video which shows the life of a polar bear as she kills a seal, swim and meet another polar bear, all from the point of view (POV) of the actual polar bear. This video was edited and compiled from raw footage recorded by a camera equipped radio collar that was put on a female polar bear in the Beaufort Sea during April 2014 by the US Geological Survey. The video, which is the first ever from a free-ranging polar bear on Arctic sea ice, shows an interaction with a potential mate, playing with food, and swimming at the water's surface and under the sea ice. These videos will be used by the US Geological Survey in research to understand polar bear behavior and energetics in an Arctic with declining sea ice.
