Google adds the 'Polar Bear capital of the world' to Street View


One of the more immediate effects of climate change is that the icy habitats of the Polar Bear are very rapidly evaporating. In an attempt to connect people more directly to the issue, Google and Polar Bears International have teamed up to bring the evidence straight to Street View. Attaching a Trekker Backpack to the charity's specially adapted vehicle, the pair have mapped the frozen tundra of Churchill, Manitoba, otherwise known as the "Polar Bear capital of the word." In addition to the harsh landscape, the team have captured a few of the most famous four-legged residents, so if you fancy getting up close and personal with nature, head down to the source link and get looking.
