February Wrap-up

We have concluded our studies for the February field campaign. Craig and Dick will return with the dogs in March to detect the polar bear denning sites. April and Glen will return in April to locate the evacuated polar bear dens, detect the grizzly dens with the dogs, and make snow measurements at the evacuated polar bear dens.
