There are so many interesting things to learn about these powerful bears! About Polar Bears When polar bears live outdoors in the wild, they can live to be about 15 to 18 years old. However, there have been some bears recorded to have been as old as 31 or 32 years old. Polar Bears that live in captivity (not living in the wild) can many times live to be between 35 – 39 years old. In fact, there was a female polar bear that lived to the age of 42 in a Canadian zoo! Polar bears are very smart. In fact, a research scientist claimed that polar bears are every bit as smart as apes. A hungry polar bear was observed smashing open blocks of ice to get to the fish that were frozen inside. These bear can be playful as well. Some bears were observed stacked up plastic pipes, just to knock them all down again. To help the polar bear survive in the Arctic, they need to rely on their senses. They have very good hearing and eyesight, as well as a good sense of smell. Their teeth are very sharp and spaced far apart. This helps them when they eat, and to hold onto their prey.

Extensively illustrated with Ian McAllister's magnificent photographs, The Salmon Bears explores the delicate balance that exists between the grizzly, black and spirit bears and their natural environment, the last great wilderness along the central coast of British Columbia. Key to this relationship are the salmon that are born in the rivers each spring, who then go out to sea as juveniles and return as adults to spawn and die, completing a cycle of life that ensures the survival of not only their own species but also virtually every other plant and animal in the rainforest. In clear language suitable for young readers, the authors describe the day-to-day activities that define the lives of these bears through the four seasons. But this is also very much the story of the Great Bear Rainforest, a vast tract of land that stretches from the northern tip of Vancouver Island to the Alaska border and contains some of the largest stands of old-growth forest left on the West Coast. The Salmon Bears focuses on the interconnectedness of all life in the rainforest and makes a strong case for the importance of protecting this vital ecological resource.
