Inspired by an article in National Geographic about the most Southern polar bears which are in Hudson Bay, Canada. The population has been forced to migrate North permanently. This is due to climate change increasing the temperature and reducing the ice sheet surface area.

Exhibited as part of Paper Butterflies and Slide Rules Have No Place At My Party.
