Polar Bear in a Village – level 2

Polar Bear in a Village – level 2

20-09-2016 15:00

A young polar bear strayed into a village in the Russian Arctic. Locals trapped her underneath a house and called the defence ministry.

A military aircraft travelled to the island to rescue the polar bear. She travelled by a helicopter to a town in Russia’s Far East, and then people took her on a plane to Moscow. She is going to the city zoo.

Polar bears are called white bears in Russia. They live in the Arctic. They are a vulnerable species because of their changing natural home.

Difficult words: stray (move without knowing where you are going), trap (when something or someone cannot escape a place), vulnerable species (an animal kind which is in danger of dying out).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
