I tend to think from the perspective of the individual who lives there.
So actually it would be a Polar Bear defends his home from 60 human invaders.
I mean really think about it. People cry about how the Polar Bears are dying all the time, and yet here we have 60 'tourists' tromping through the
bears habitat, and then end up shooting the thing because they were dumb enough to invade it's territory in the first place.
I asked Google 'how many polar bears', and this is what I got.
Scientists can only provide informed estimates. In 2008, scientists estimated that there might be 20,000 to 25,000 of them.
In May 2008, U.S. Department of the Interior listed the polar bear as a Threatened Species under the Endangered Species Act. Canada and Russia
list the polar bear as a species of concern.
At the 2009 meeting of the PBSG, the world's leading polar bear scientists reported that of the 19 subpopulations of polar bears, eight were
declining, three were stable, and one was increasing. They lacked sufficient data to say what is happening to the remaining seven.
They list melting ice as a danger to the bears.
Maybe they need to add armed 'tourists' as well.
