Polar bear. In Canada, the polar bear is found from the High Arctic south to Hudson Bay's southern reaches.

Canada is one of five “polar bear nations,” along with the United States (Alaska), Russia, Denmark (Greenland) and Norway. While the polar bear population worldwide is estimated to be between 20,000 and 25,000, approximately 13,000 to 15,000 live in Canada.
