Double Feature: The Oscars & International Polar Bear Day - Polar Bears International
[Testing the share on Blogger thingy]
Polar bears are classified as Threatened under the Endangered Species Act, but experts in polar bear science consider them endangered, and predict that two-thirds of the world's population could disappear by mid-century as the Arctic continues to warm due to climate change. The major threat is rapid loss of sea ice, but pollution, poaching and industrial impact are also considered dangers. Today is about raising awareness of the threats polar bears face, but also about what we can do to help. If I've done this correctly, you can visit the link at the beginning of this post for tips. If not, I'll fix. :)
Happy International Polar Bear Day!
