There are an estimated population of 20,000-25,000 polar bears, of which 60% reside in Canada (Polar Bears International, 2014). There are 19 sub-populations and each of these have individual changes in their populations. Temperatures in the Arctic can reach a chilly -45°C in the coldest winter, but averages -33°C in January and February.
