For all their global appeal and familiarity, polar bears are actually few and far between, with 19 small populations spread out across a habitat the size of Europe. And they have been studied very little. The traditional method –using helicopters and tranquilizers- is invasive, expensive and difficult, so sampling occurs per group only once every 12 to 15 years.
