Association of Polar Early Career Scientists

 

October 4, 2019

For the second day in a row, the polar bear mother and cub visited. This time, they slept next to Akademik Fedorov and were around for the entire day. One of the fun things about being on a ship full of keen scientists, is that we’re all thrilled to experience nature; whether it’s staying up late to see the first sea ice, getting out of bed to look at bioluminescence or spending all day outside in the cold watching polar bears. We all thoroughly enjoyed watching the bears roam about and even play. However, it was a bit concerning that they were so brave, knowing that on-ice operations were beginning soon. As much as we loved seeing them from the safety of the ship, we hoped they would soon move on.
