Polar bears are making an appearance this summer at the University of Alaska Museum of the North in Fairbanks.

The exhibit, titled "The Last Polar Bear: Facing the Truth of a Warming World," opens on May 16 and showcases the life and changing habitat of these arctic icons.

Large-format color photographs by photographer Steven Kazlowski illustrate the polar bear's annual cycle of life -- from mothers with cubs to adolescents at play to adults on the hunt -- through images taken along the Arctic coast from Canada's Hershel Island to Point Hope, Alaska.

The images; accompanying essays and narratives; and film footage of polar bears by filmmaker Arthur C. Smith, detail the impact of climate change on the polar bear and its habitat.
