Now, thanks to science, even the polar bears themselves have been able to send messages and emails to humans. But for that, the bears need to be brought to sleep and given the necessary equipment.
Scientists at the Norwegian Polarance Institute, June Ars, receive monthly messages from females polar bears living in the Arctic region. Some of them come in the form of simple notes like SMS and some emails.
The district is located near Norway. There are 300 polar bears in Svalbard and only 26,000 polar bears in the world.
Each year, scientists place satellite collars on 70 polar bears, with each transmitter making a satellite call once every 24 hours that contains their movements and other information. All the details go directly to June’s email account.
Information about these animals’ movements is essential for experts because it allows us to know the effects of climate change on animals. Then we can also learn how animals are adapting to this changing environment.
The ice in the region is melting rapidly, and many polar bears are severely affected. These simple creatures are moving very fast to other areas.
Before the tracking collar, all the bears were weighed, and samples of various body fluids were taken to assess their health and air pollution.
Thanks to this electric collar, it is possible to estimate whether the female bear is going to the cave or not, because in this case, it often gives birth to a baby.
Experts also say that polar bears are trying to adapt to the changing environment.
