The Blue-eyed Bear looks to her Arctic friends for help finding a new home.

The Arctic is melting! So, in her search for a new home the Blue-eyed bear is looking to her Arctic friends for a possible solution. She asks the Arctic Tern, who travels 22,000 miles a year round trip from arctic to antarctic, for their opinion of home. The Tern says Turn south!

The Blue-eyed Bear then goes to fine her friends the Polar Bees! They are bumble bees (Bombus polaris) who live in underground nests were they stash a bit of honey in the short arctic summer. Although the bee’s share their sisterhood with the BE Bear they won’t share their home or honey and the BE Bear must move on!
