Webcam tracks baby polar bear

28 February 2012, 09:32

Denmark - Advocacy groups have set up a webcam to let viewers worldwide follow the development of a three-month-old polar bear cub in a Danish wildlife park.

The camera by Bozeman-based Polar Bears International, the Scandinavian Wildlife Park and The Annenberg Foundation's explore.org went live on Monday to coincide with International Polar Bear Day.

The camera streams for two hours each day, between 09:00 and 11:00 EST (12:00 GMT and 15:00 GMT), the time when Siku romps around outside near a pond in the nearly 26 000m² park.

Siku, which means "sea ice" in Inupiat, was born on November 22. The park is raising Siku because his mother does not produce milk.

Polar Bears International president Robert Buchanan said the project is meant to inspire people to care about polar bears and the Arctic.
