It's an idea that I had years ago. And it seems that this idea has also been floated (no pun intended) by others recently.
I searched "polar bears" and "food drops" and arrived at an article just a few days old on an NBC news site. The article by David Cox discusses proposals by scientists -- including University of Alberta biologist Andrew Derocher -- to air drop food to bears (to maintain 5,000 bears would cost the Canadian government $2 million per month, according to the article).
This article from World Wildlife Fund talks about the polar bear diet
If you have ideas about how to save the polar bear population, or an inside line to any of the scientists and conservationists trying to do so, I would love to know; please comment, below!
