Nora, the 10-month polar bear cub, was seen playing in a pool full of ice and swimming during her 30-day quarantine period after her arrival at the Oregon Zoo in Portland on Wednesday. The climate scientists at the Oregon Zoo are tracking polar bears with a high-tech collar. The data is used to help researchers investigate the effect of retreating sea ice on polar bears’ livelihoods.
