Polar Bears International’s driving goal to protect Polar Bears focuses attention on the urgent challenges polar bears face in a warming Arctic and the part each of us can play in stopping climate change. But why do we talk about conserving polar bears so much when there are other species closer to extinction?
Join Alysa McCall for a live chat on Saturday, November 8th at 1pm ET / 10am PT to discuss how actions we take to preserve sea ice and polar bears will help every creature on this planet, even you!
Since Polar bears have evolved for a life on the sea ice, they rely on annual freezing temperatures to reach their seal prey. But the arctic sea ice is rapidly diminishing due to a warming Earth, affecting the entire arctic ecosystem, from seals to walruses. For polar bears, sea ice losses means reduced access to food and lower cub survival rates.
Fortunately, we can stay informed of the situation be reading up on the scientific research Polar Bears International supports and learn how to take action to combat climate change ourselves with these everyday tips.
