Scientists have begun to study the Chukchi-Alaskan polar bear population

A research team led by a senior fellow at the Institute of Ecology and Evolution named after A.N. Severtsov RAN Ilya Mordvintsev arrived in the village of Vankarem, Iultinsky District, where by the end of November it is planned to study the Chukotka-Alaskan polar bear population. It is reported by the press service of the administration of the Chukotka Autonomous Region.

According to the scientist, while traces of the polar bear's life are not found, but the data on marine mammals were collected, which is also included in the mission of the expedition. Scientists plan to equip female polar bears with collars with satellite radio transmitters. Ilya Mordvintsev clarified that with them they brought 7 such devices.

“The collar transmits a certain number of signals per day, depending on the program. At the Institute, we will record these messages through the reception center. Thus, the location of the beast will be determined, and as a result we will receive a movement track. We also hope that we will be able to determine the place and timing of the female's occurrence in the den. In total, we have 5 collars of one version and 2 of another version, ”said the group leader.

IPEE studies are organized within the framework of the Polar Bear Research Program in the Russian Arctic by the permanent expedition of the Russian Academy of Sciences to study animals of the Red Data Book of the Russian Federation and other particularly important fauna of Russia. The project is financed by the Russian Geographical Society. The expedition is supported by the Government of the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug.
