Polar bears are an icon of the north, a marine mammal adapted to life on sea ice habitat. They travel on the ice and use it as a platform to capture ringed seals, their primary prey species. They are a threatened species, as climate change accelerates the loss of their sea ice habitat each year. The Alaska Zoo is an Arctic Ambassador Center dedicated to conserving polar bears through education and action.
