Two thirds of the world's polar bear population live in Canada, but with climate change melting arctic ice, the polar bears are at risk. Scientists predict we will see an all time low in arctic ice levels this year, and areas like Churchill, Manitoba and Tuktoyaktuk, north of Alberta, are seeing rapid changes.
Can the changes be reversed? Will the polar bear disappear along with the ice?
We talk to Dr. Andrew Derocher, Professor of Biological Sciences at the University of Alberta, and an Arctic Mammals Researcher focused on Polar Bears.
