Polar bear webcam captures live images of Canadian polar bear migration By The Associated Press

HELENA, Mont. (AP) ' A new program is streaming live the annual migration of hundreds of polar bears in Canada.

Foundation vice president Charles Annenberg Weingarten says he hopes to expand it into a program of streaming cameras in various wild places
