Dr. Andrew Derocher is a biologist and professor at the University of Alberta. He studies ecology, conservation, and of course, polar bears! He wants to protect polar bear populations and analyzes climate change and its relation to polar bears. In 2012, he published Polar Bears: A Complete Guide to Their Biology and Behavior.


Here's a picture of a HUGE seal that Andrew and his team found in the Arctic.
