Norway Looking for a Polar Bear Spotter

Looking for a summer job? How about being a polar bear spotter in Norway. Svalbard Islands, which is halfway between Norway and the North Pole, is looking for someone to keep watch for polar bears while scientists do research in the area. The island is inhabited by 2,400 people and 3,000 polar bears.

Job requirements aren’t too tough, you have to enjoy the outdoors, have a strong loud voice, you have to be a good shot and you have to be able to identify a polar bear. The requirement of carrying a rifle is a must but officials say if you can yell loud enough you’ll probably never have to shoot. The loud yelling usually scares the polar bears away, but just in case, you’ll need the rifle because polar bears are fierce. The job lasts only three weeks and gets underway July 8th. How much does the job pay? You’ll have to call the Governor of the island to find out, but it could be an adventure of a lifetime.
