The Polar Bears occupying the area between Spitsbergen and the Russian Archipelago are referred to as the Barents Sea population and are estimated to make up over 3,000 bears. They are long-lived mammals with low reproductive rates and they have black skin beneath their beautiful white coat - which saw them hunted in the past, causing near extinction.
