Atiqtalik shows the largest bear in the world and her gentle side. This female roams the freezing sea ice of the Arctic Circle with her thick winter coat for protection. Yet she is vulnerable to extinction. With Arctic sea ice cover declining by about 14% per decade due to climate change it is harder for her to hunt, sometimes forcing her into human settlements. Exploration such as for oil is also disrupting her delicate ecosystem, and a spill could be deadly.
