Where do Polar bears live?
Most polar bears occur north of the Arctic Circle to the North Pole. There are however some polar bear populations south of the Arctic Circle in the Hudson Bay of Manitoba, Canada.
Polar bears live in Alaska, Canada, Russia, Greenland, and some northern islands owned by Norway.
Polar bears depend on the sea ice, which forms above the open waters where their seal prey lives. They will spend time on land when sea ice is not available.
Polar bears are excellent swimmers, and they travel long distances between shore and the sea ice if necessary.
You can learn more about Polar Bears here from the National Wildlife Federation.
