Arctic mystery: Researchers stunned as Polar bears found surviving without ice

Experts have previously issued dire warnings that polar bears are set to disappear from the Arctic by 2040 as the planet warms up. However, this nightmare scenario may be averted as researchers say that they have discovered isolated groups of polar bears in south-east Greenland that have survived without ice.

The researchers believe that this population managed to thrive as a result of freshwater ice from glaciers that discharge into the sea.

For the scientists, this discovery was a glimmer of hope, as the conditions in this part of Greenland are similar to what scientists believe most of the Arctic region will look like by the end of the century.

This got me thinking of the etymology so I did some amateur research about what different languages call polar bears.

Polar bear - English, Italian, Polish, Greek, Romanian etc
Ice bear - German, Dutch, Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, Icelandic, Finnish, Estonian, Hungarian, Czech, possibly more
White bear - Latvian, Lithuanian, Scottish Gaelic, Basque, Esperanto, possibly more
Maritime bear - Latin
Both polar and white bear - French, Spanish, Portuguese, Ukrainian etc

Russian seems to use both polar bear and white bear as well as northern bear and direct loans from their Arctic peoples.
Welsh seems to use polar but Google Translate also gave me a weird thing in back-and-forth translation that might be called Smiling bear. Probably not true, though.

The Arctic peoples from Inuit to Yupik seem to use the word Nanook, which I can't decipher the origin of (and given their historic proximity, it would make sense for it to not be a compound). Same thing for the Komi word oski and Tshukchi word umka. It would also make a lot of sense for these peoples to consider polar bears as the 'standard bear' and use additional descriptions when referring to more southern species - e.g. dark bear or warm land bear or very sad iceless bear.

Worth noting that Hawai'i seems to use a direct Arctic derivative word: Nanuka.

I posted this in a few places and got some varied reactions from some further researching and saying this was over optimistic and the bears were on the edge if extinction and others saying the bears could change their diet and were perfectly fine in warmer conditions

Loved the different words different countries use for Polar Bears.

This place look suitable for me.
