Description
Today, with the help of Polar Bears International, we're celebrating International Polar Bear Day by sharing an intimate look at polar bears through Street View in their natural habitat. The Street View imagery includes a remote corner of Canada's tundra: Churchill, Manitoba, home to one of the largest polar bear populations on the planet. Our Google Maps team mounted the Street View Trekker onto a specially designed "Tundra Buggy," which allowed us to travel across this fragile landscape without interfering with the polar bears or other native species.
