Polar bears and climate change is focus of exhibit


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.
