Norilsk residents can choose names for two polar bears

July 23, 2021

The Host of the Arctic 2021 project has launched a contest on Instagram.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. Polar bear aerial survey project Master of the Arctic – 2021 has announced a competition to choose names for two polar bears. The behavior and condition of predators is monitored using satellite collars.

According to expert estimates, about 25 thousand polar bears now live in the world, of which about eight thousand are in Russia. Only females wear collars – males have a wide neck, and they easily remove devices.

“True, one of the bears has already thrown off the gadget. But scientists are now observing the second female”, the organizers say.

You can suggest your options on the project page @hozyain.arctici on Instagram. The results will be summed up on August 2 live. Two winners will receive souvenirs and a symbol of the expedition – a polar bear.

Earlier we wrote that scientists studied the behavior of polar bears in Franz Josef Land. With warming and melting ice in the Arctic, predators began to behave differently. We also reported that the film about the polar bear Martha from Norilsk received an award from an international festival.
