Bear 2183 on the Polar Bear Tracker is spotted with cubs
Jon Aars, wildlife researcher with the Norwegian Polar Institute, flew over the bear and her cubs while conducting a walrus survey in Svalbard.
The bear, known as Bear 2183 on the Polar Bear Tracker, was seen climbing over rocky terrain with her male and female cubs.
This is good news, as 20 to 40 percent (depending on the region) of polar bear cubs do not survive their first year.
