Bears: A SeeMoreHD Exclusive!
and High Definition
bears live on the shores of Hudson Bay each fall waiting for the
first cold days of winter. Once frozen, the Bay will becomes a highway
to the Arctic where the bears will hunt ringed and bearded seals.
Each fall, around mid October, SeeMore also heads out to the tundra to build a different sort of highway. It's a digital highway
that delivers live and HD video of the beautiful bears to the world.
We connect a very tricked-out Tundra Buggy ™ to the Internet.
Via a 45mb wireless link that we build across the tundra, we produce live and same-day HD footage of the polar bears
on the National Geographic website, and on our website.

Are Polar Bears OK?
Polar bears are beautiful, and we might still have
them in fifty years if we act now. The ice they walk upon is disappearing
along with the common sense of our political leaders. Climate change
is impacting the bears. Learn
more about the polar bear story here.
