International day of the polar bear

BANGOR - Kids got a glimpse of the polar life today at the Maine discovery museum in Bangor.

In honor of international day of the polar bear the museum wanted to raise awareness about where polar bears live, how they live, how they eat, and some of the troubles that they are facing.


Director of education at the Maine Discovery Museum Trudi Plummer said "They love polar bears who doesn't they are just magnificent beautiful creatures, and it's up to us to make sure that we continue to have polar bears, and the science of how to survive in a harsh environment is just really cool."


Kids got to wear polar bear mittens and dip their hands in ice cubs to feel how cold the polar bear environment is.


They also got to see what the fur of the polar bear looks like with play-doh and straws.
