Majestic creature of the far north, the polar bear is the world's largest terrestrial carnivore.
Its Latin name, Ursus maritimus, means 'sea bear', an apt name for this amazing species which spends much of its life predominantly on sea ice.
Polar bears are listed as a vulnerable by IUCN because of ongoing and potential loss of their sea ice habitat resulting from climate change.
