Without question the polar bear is what comes to mind for most people when you mention the North Pole. These 500 to 1,000 pound animals roam the polar ice eating primarily ringed seals. Unfortunately, the receding polar ice due to global warming has now caused the polar bear to be put on the list of threatened species.

You can learn more about what is happening to the polar bears and the changing environment of the north polar region at Pacific Science Center's 7th annual Polar Science Weekend on March 1-4. You will be able to build an igloo, snuggle into hooded cold-weather parkas, peek into tents used in polar research camps, take the salinity taste test and join a spectacular smashing ice demonstration as you meet and talk to polar researchers.
