More than a year ago, InsideClimate News reporter Sabrina Shankman set out to tell the story of seven American hikers who went on a wilderness adventure into Canada’s Arctic tundra—polar bear country—and came back with a harrowing story.

The result was “Meltdown: Terror at the Top of the World,” an e-book we released last month that shows what is happening right now to polar bears and people as climate change melts the Arctic.

Below is Part 2 of the documentary video “Polar Bear Man” produced by VICE, ICN’s partner in this project. Watch Part 1.
