I’m a polar bear. Are you?


It’s International Polar Bear Day on Monday 27 February!

A whole day dedicated to raising awareness of this super cool species.

The polar bear is dependent on sea ice for its survival, but climate change is causing drastic reductions in the extent of ice cover across the Arctic region, meaning that accessing prey will become more problematic for the polar bear as time goes on.

Please join our campaign to raise awareness about polar bears! 

Say “I’m a polar bear too”
