International Polar Bear Day

Graphic_Intl_Polar_Bear_DayYou probably didn’t know that February 27th is International Polar Bear Day. Well, it is and the purpose is to raise awareness about polar bears but especially the conservation of these creatures. As you may be aware, polar bears are significantly affected by the impact of climate change. This is because, the warming climate reduces sea ice areas which the polar bears need for survival. As sea ice surface area declines, the polar bears will suffer habitat loss, increased competition and decreased hunting opportunities. Today’s holiday helps to raise awareness about
how our actions as people such as energy usage, carbon
emissions etc can have an effect on these bears. So think about the bears today and try and make energy conscious decisions in the future. Thanks!
