Description of the habitat:•They have a very cold habitat in the Arctic Region.•Most Polar bears live on the packs of ice along shores.•They inhabit arctic sea ice, water and islands.•Also they mostly prefer sea ice habitat with leads and polynyas(leads are water channels or cracks through ice which may remain open (ice free) for only a few minutes to several months, depending upon weather conditions and water currents.•Polynyas are areas of water, surrounded by ice.•Some polar bears follow the southern edge of the ice pack year-round, making extensive migrations as the ice recedes and advances.•Some polar bears spend part of the year on land.•The ocean temperatures in the Arctic are about -1.5°C (29°F) in summer. In winter the ocean temperatures can drop to -2°C (28°F), at which point seawater begins to freeze.
