2015 - WILDLIFE CAM IN ACTION

ABOARD POLAR BEARS ON ARCTIC SEA ICE











The Arctic Exploration Fund, along with support from WWF & Rolex assisted the US Geological Survey in collecting the first ever video shot from the perspective of a polar bear.


Using four cameras on four polar bears USGS research biologist Anthony Pagano is able to understand how polar bears respond to loss of sea ice from climate warming. Until now, scientists could only make assumptions about the remote behavior of polar bears. But now, they can actually see it.

THE WILDLIFE CAM ON NARWHALS

The AEF is currently developing a 4K documentary exploring the life of Narwhals in the Canadian Arctic. AEF will outfit Narwhals with Wildlife Cams to travel with these magnificent sea creatures in their remote habitat under the ice.
