FACT 70: On bitterly cold days with fierce winds, polar bears dig shelter pits in snow banks and curl up in a tight ball. Sometimes they cover their muzzles—which radiate heat—with their thickly furred paws and let the snow drift around and over them. #polarbearproud #canada150

Polar bears may not be great dads, but that doesn't mean we don't celebrate all the other dads out there!

Final message from BJ Kirschhoffer's journey to Svalbard, Norway with Quark Expeditions:

"The Ocean Adventurer is now docked in Longyearbyen and being resupplied for another voyage–––sadly, I must return home and bid this amazing place farewell. Over the past 12 days the passengers and crew on our ship had amazing wildlife encounters in the air, on the ice, and in the water. My highlights were seeing a bowhead whale and polar bears on the sea ice north of the Svalbard archipelago! Unfortunately, the summer sea ice melt appears to be ahead of schedule with the ice edge quickly receding northward. Stay tuned as others from PBI will be reporting from Svalbard through the early part of summer."
