Almost all about animals: avoiding animal cruelty, observations about daily life with animals, treks to see animals in the wild, acting to preserve habitat and conserve species, animal photos and more. Also a bit about Idaho and life in Boise.
I wasn't sure how close we'd get to see the polar bears, but they are curious, and so we actually got to be quite close in some cases. Bears that had just arrived to the area were skeptical of tundra buggies, but once a bear had been a round for a day or so they ignored them or came right up to them. It was actually pretty amazing to be standing on the back of a tundra buggy on a grated platform and have a polar bear come underneath, smelling, putting his or her nose against the grate, along with huge, huge front paws. Several times I was able to look right into the eyes of a bear. Many times bears walked very close to the buggy but did not directly approach.
