Tasul the Polar Bear Wears a Special Research Collar Equipped With a Video Camera and an Accelerometer

Tasul, a polar bear who lives at the Oregon Zoo, wears a special collar equipped with an accelerometer as part of a research project with the U.S. Geological Survey. The collar allows researchers to study how Tasul’s behavior coincides with accelerometer readings so USGS can study polar bears in the wild with a similar device. Oregon Zoo has also outfitted the collar with a Go Pro camera to provide unique video from the view of a polar bear.
