Today is International Polar Bear Day

Today is International Polar Bear Day – a day where zoos, schools and conservation organizations from around the world join together to take action to reduce our carbon footprint.

To commemorate this day, explore.org and Polar Bears International are hosting a special live Q&A on explore.org from 10-11am Pacific Time while showcasing some highlights from the recent polar bear migration.

Can’t make the live chat? You can also participate by checking out PBI’s Save Our Sea Ice (SOS!) campaign, a series of carbon-reduction efforts to help save sea ice habitat. And as always you can observe polar bears through one of our live cams, pictures and highlights in this section we have dedicated to polar bears.

We are making a list of simple things people can do to help the world around them on our blog. Share a tip at feedback@explore.org and we’ll include it.
