Google maps polar bears

Members of the Google Maps team joined with non-profit group Polar Bears International to venture into tundra in a remote part of Canada’s Churchill, Manitoba, late last year for images of the animals. However, the Google Maps images only captured a few sightings of the polar bears, whose population is said to be threatened by warming global temperatures.
