Breakthrough in monitoring methods of polar bears through snow tracks. News from the BBC.

To date, in order to take tests, polar bears have been tranquilised with dart guns or by examining dead animals. With a new method it is enough to find traces in the snow to be able to identify polar bears at the individual level which is both non-intrusive and cost effective. This pilot project was carried out by AquaBiota Water Research, a Swedish research company, together with WWF and the Northern Slope Borough, Utqiaġvik Alaska. This new method is now an important element in improving the protection of the threatened polar bear, as highlighted by the BBC news.
