San Diego polar bear to help in research project

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A female polar bear at the San Diego Zoo is wearing a bit more than her fur coat these days.

Visitors at the zoo may see a white collar occasionally around Tatqiq's neck while keepers are gearing her up to participate in a research project.

The project, led by the US Geological Survey in Alaska, will look at polar bear behaviours in the Arctic.

Researchers will essentially look at her behaviors to better understand the behaviors of bears wearing the device in the wild.
