The polar bear is often regarded as a marine mammal because it spends many months of the year at sea. Its preferred habitat is the annual sea ice covering the waters over the continental shelf and the Arctic inter-island archipelagos. These areas, known as the "Arctic ring of life", have high biological productivity in comparison to the deep waters of the high Arctic. The polar bear tends to frequent areas where sea ice meets water, such as polynyas and leads (temporary stretches of open water in Arctic ice), to hunt the seals that make up most of its diet. Polar bears are therefore found primarily along the perimeter of the polar ice pack, rather than in the Polar Basin close to the North Pole where the density of seals is low.

Polar bears are also called sea bear, ice bear or white bear of the North, and they are found throughout the Arctic. They are likely evolved about 200,000 years to possibly as long as 500,000 years ago from grizzly bears somewhere off eastern Russia or the Alaskan Panhandle. Polar bears depend greatly on sea ice for their primary habitat to get their food which includes mainly ringed seals and bearded seals. It is said that polar bears never have had the possibility to reach the Antarctic as the worlds oceans never have been frozen from the north to the south. Polar bears are strong swimmers but not strong enough to swim to the Antarctic.
