polar bear kills seal

17 June 2022

The amount of polar bears has never been so high. We had three polar bears sofar seen on Storholmen and of 176 nests only 3 are remaining. On Prins Heinrich the effect is less disturbing. Of 23 nests only 3 fully predated and two lost some eggs. Probably because there are seals to hunt. This bear just caught a seal on Prins Heinrich and is killing it.
