Question: What is it about polar bears that's kept your interest and fascination over all these years. You've worked with the animals for quite some time.


Answer (Scott Schliebe): Well, I think polar bears are an incredible animal. They live in one of the harshest environments of the world, one of the most remote and inaccessible. They, for a long time, lived in an environment that was relatively pristine. I was fascinated by how does an animal that lives in this environment make a living, and how does it seem to thrive and survive in this environment. And I'm still fascinated by this. Every time I see a polar bear it's something special.
