la banchisa

Today’s Parola del Giorno is the noun la banchisa, which means pack ice.

L’orso polare inseguiva la foca sulla banchisa, stava quasi per prenderla quando la foca trovò un buco nel ghiaccio, ci si infilò e si mise in salvo.

The polar bear was following the seal on the pack ice and was almost about to get it when the seal found a hole in the ice and slipped through it and saved itself.
