The majestic polar bear is a fitting icon for a nation that, like Ursus martimus itself, has been shaped by the forces of ice, wind, water and stone. Stoic and strong, adaptable and clever, the polar bear has long captivated the Canadian imagination and been held up as a symbol of the northern spirit. At a hulking weight of up to 600 kilograms, the polar bear is considered the largest bear not only in North America, but the entire world. Today, approximately 15,000 polar bears reside in the Canadian Arctic, comprising the greatest number worldwide.
