Although they are often placed together in cartoons and drawings, it is a common misconception that polar bears and penguins live in the same polar environments. Polar Bears can be found in five nations: U.S. (Alaska), Canada, Russia, Greenland, and Norway. Luckily for penguins, polar bears do not live in Antarctica.

Our #IcePhoto today is from the passenger slideshow on our Spitsbergen Explorer voyage. Spitsbergen, the largest and only permanently populated island within Norway's Svalbard island chain, is often referred to as the wildlife capital of the Arctic!
