Now I am confused, polar bears feed mainly on ringed seals and bearded seals so how to stop the polar bears from eating them, without hurting the polar bear?

I THINK polar bears mostly feed on ringed seals.....not bearded.......they also will eat whale...and unfortunately due to human movement into their territories and loss of food are scavenging more and more
