Polar bears adapt to climate change by eating caribou, goose eggs: researchers
All may not be lost, however, as analysis of polar bear poop by scientists indicates they may be more flexible than previously thought and are adapting to climate changes. Research conducted in the western part of Hudson Bay in northern Manitoba, Canada on the south range of polar bear hunting grounds show they may be adapting by changing up their food supply.
Polar poop showed bears now were eating birds, eggs, and berries as substitutes for seal meat. They've also been observed drinking hydraulic fluid drained from forklifts, eating lead acid batteries, and consuming snow machine seats in attempts to adjust their diets. It's apparently proving a lot easier for them to do this than try to stay up with the fleeting ice and seals and may be working.
