Polar bears are far more resilient than previously thought

The Americans observed fifty polar bears off the coast of Alaska for about five years, which allowed them to report their extraordinary endurance. It is noticed that these animals can make long journeys for ten days, as well as non-stop swimming about seven hundred kilometers.

This was established using GPS sensors that were attached to the aforementioned fifty bears. So scientists received the most accurate data on all their movements.

It turned out that ninety-five kilometers is the average sea travel distance for these large animals. But there were real marathon runners and athletes among them. One bear was able to overcome the distance of four hundred kilometers, and the stayer swam about seven hundred kilometers in ten days, almost without rest or stopping. All this was devoted to the search for ice in order to hunt sea seals - the main food of polar bears.

A small digression: September is coming soon and the second wave of conscriptions to the army is approaching, and therefore we advise you to familiarize yourself with what a second deferral from the army is and what other opportunities are there to rummage around for another year)
