Polar Bears: One Species at a Time

A polar bear and her cub on the ice

Alan D. Wilson,

The Encyclopedia of Life brings us another installment of the podcast, One Species at a Time. In this podcast, host Ari Daniel Shapiro relates two close calls with polar bears. Listen as Heather Cray recalls how, dumped by a storm on a small Arctic island, she got an unexpected wake-up call. And when researcher Steve Amstrup accidentally crashed through the roof of a polar bear’s den, no one could predict what happened next.
