Adopt a polar bear

Posted on

Today is the 27th February which means just one thing:  it's International Polar Bear Day!

The day hopes to raise awereness of the plight of polar bears and how we can all help them.     The polar bear is at the head of food chain in the Arctic and a good indicator of how species are faring.   The difficulty is that in a number of locations where polar bears live, the sea ice is disappearing as a result of global warming.  The picture is patchy:  in some areas, the polar bear populations is stable;  in one it is actually in increasing.  In others, it is declining.  However, there is no room for complacency.  Nine areas where polar bears live are described by Polar Bears International as being data deficient.
