To collar or not to collar?

Collaring technology (radiotelemetry) helps answer questions that are practically impossible to answer with other methods:

  • Where do bears go when we can’t see them?
  • How does shipping affect bears on the ice?
  • How far do they move? Have denning locations changed?
  • How are bears adapting to changes in sea ice?
  • Do they use different areas now than in the past?
  • Do changes in their movements change how bears and humans interact?
