Polar bear POV: stunning and startling

In the award-winning 2013 documentary Ice Bear, cameras capture never before seen images of polar bears in the Canadian Arctic. Some of the most beautiful – and haunting images – of a group of polar bears on a seemingly endless swim is now making the rounds on social media.  Within a few days, GoPro’s “Polar Bears – The Quest for Sea Ice,” attracted more than 650,00 views on YouTube.

“Take a swim with a polar bear family as they traverse the Arctic Ocean in search of sea ice,” the ubiquitous camera-maker posted.

Be awestruck as you watch.
