The 27th February is International Polar Bear Day!(February 27, 2017)
It's International Polar Bear Day on the 27th February - a good chance to take some time or even just a quick 5 minutes, to think about polar bears and how you can help them.
Polar Bears International is an amazing resource on everything you could want to know about polar bears, from their habitat, to their diet, how climate change is affecting them, their breeding and mating habits and more
Ways to help polar bears:
Check out the International Polar Bear Day Facebook Page to see what's happening there
You could commit to some or all of the Actions with Impact ideas Polar Bears International have for you. You may well be doing lots of these already, but it's worth taking a look at their thoughts to see if there are others you can do.
I love the idea of Actions with Impact - you want to know what you're doing is making a difference. Ideas I particularly liked from their list and website are:
Spend some time on Polar Bears International website and have a good look at the projects they are doing, the resources available to everyone - teachers, small and medium sized businesses, corporations, community members, students, scientists, zoologists and researchers - and then tell people about it!
Teachers, Polar Bears International have an amazing Resource Centre with lessons, webcasts, presentations and materials - even mini courses for you :-)
Waving a big paw to everyone - let's all commit to doing just ONE thing to help polar bears and it will make a difference.
