Another Observation at Hudson Bay Resulting in Less Sea Ice For Polar Bears

According to a CBC program I saw last night, Canada's fresh water from inland rivers drain into Hudson's Bay. One observation that scientists made was that there is less fresh water draining into the bay over the years. Less fresh water will make Hudson Bay slightly more salinated which in turn results in less sea ice being formed. This of course will impact the polar bears and other wildlife in the Arctic.

See Free Spirit Gallery Inuit art for some beautiful polar bear sculptures.
