Polar Bears International is the only organization committed exclusively to wild polar bears. The group worked hard to conserve these gigantic animals and the sea ice they depend on.
“Through media, science, and advocacy, we work to inspire people to care about the Arctic, the threats to its future, and the connection between this remote region and our global climate.”
According to the organization, every year, polar bears of Western Hudson Bay are forced ashore in summer when the sea ice melts. To raise awareness about the alarming sea ice loss in the Arctic, they created “Arctic Sea Ice Day,” on July 15th to help reverse this trend.
“The key to getting the climate system back to functioning the way it should, and to preserving a future for polar bears across the Arctic, is to move away from using fossil fuels for energy altogether.”
You can help save sea ice by supporting your local renewable energy programs and learning facts about Arctic sea ice, or by getting involved in the group’s different programs and campaigns.
