Children being kept away from school because of polar bear invasion

Families living in a very remote area on a Russian archipelago are afraid to send their children to school because of an invasion of polar bears in their residential zone. It is being reported by the Russian media that the bears are attacking humans in order to gain access to buildings.

Cities in the state of Novya Zemlya in Northeastern Russia have been under siege by polar bears since December, and a state of emergency has been imposed. The polar bear population is increasing in the area as a result of climate change, as the bears are being forced to go closer to habitation because their space is becoming more restricted.

The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) is helping with patrols in these communities, to help avoid a tragedy with the bears ending up killing  someone. WWF has introduced a number of tools to serve as deterrents and prevent the bears from getting too close to humans.
