More and more bears are moving through the area every day and they are getting hungrier as well as more curious! We have had a couple of big male bears trying to bite their way in. Tearing away at the underside of the lodge and ripping off panels and fittings! We now have Buggy 1 up and running and on the tundra! Buggy 1 is operated by Polar Bears International and is used for research and live broadcasts, it is the only buggy on the tundra that picks up high speed internet!
I am in the lodge dining room right now looking at the frozen edge of the bay and at a young female polar bear rolling in the sea weed... She has just sat up and stopped rolling.... She is licking her leg and yawning, she is tired after almost 10 weeks of fasting... She has now dug a little hole in the kelp and is now resting. In the distance I can see another bear walking this way, and there is a raven sitting on an icy rock...
