When you think about polar bears, you imagine gigantic creatures with tons of fur, super photogenic, and fun to watch, right? Well the reality in this region is completely different. In Svalbard, one of the islands that belong to Norway, polar bears look like malnourished and neglected dogs.
Scientists say that the polar bear population in Svalbard is doing well, but the truth is devastating. The photo you’re about to see is real and heartbreaking. In Svalbard, there are very less female polar bears and cubs, and some bears are so malnourished that their body index ranges at 2 on a scale of 1 to 5.

Because of the climate change, i.e. ice melting faster than ever before, mothers lose all their cubs in two years time.
