Have you heard of the live polar bear cam? My girls and I are obsessed. I read about this on the BBC website and we spent the entire evening last night watching a few polar bears play around with each other — in real time via webstream.
A web camera observing polar bears was set up on the edge of the Hudson Bay, close to the town of Churchhill, in a spot where polar bears are waiting for the ice to form on the Hudson Bay so that they can travel further North. The Polar Bear Cam delivers a live feed and is being watched in schools all over Canada and by anyone who wants to watch.
My mind can’t quite get round the fact that, while I am drinking my cup of tea in Paris… half a dozen polar bears in the tundra of the far North of Canada are hanging out and playing with each other, and I am watching it live!
