Profile-pic-150x150Dirty Polar bear ( Ursus maritimus). Not every Polar bear is white, not every polar bear is yellowish, not every polar bear is dirty! This summer we have encountered 3 polar bears on one little island in Svalbard. One very dirty, one with a quite white fur and the third one with a more yellowish fur. For sure those 3 polar bears had their fights on this island. Polar bears are known to live solitary lives! They have been stuck together on this island waiting for the ice to come back to Svalbard. How far can a polar bear swim? At our visit the pack ice has been far up north, a very long way for a polar bear to swim. They can swim for days. But can those few days swimming cover more than 600-1000km to reach the pack ice?

Profile-pic-150x150Just back from my last trip in September 2013. The trip was to the Arctic of Svalbard, as well far north to 82-83 degrees north to the pack ice. The Arctic, a polar region, famous for it’s light, diversity and wild life! In September the moon rises on one side on the other side still the sun is up with all it’s colors of a sunset. Svalbard, settled in the northern hemisphere above the arctic circle with it’s many glaciers, mountains, famous Wildlife the Polar bear, land animals and marine life. One of the last continuous wilderness regions is the Arctic a natural world heritage.
