Polar bears are changing their diet due to the changing environment. Instead of their favored seal, the bears are turning to goose eggs for nutrition.

A team of Russian meteorologists are calling out for help as their weather station, located 2,800 miles from Moscow, have been seiged by a pack of polar bears.
A new technique could give insight into how Antarctic sea ice has changed throughout time.
