Polar Bears in Crisis

Polar Bears in Crisis

The future looks bleak for the polar bear. How can you help this vulnerable species?

Polar Bears in Crisis

World Polar Bear Day is an opportunity to acknowledge the sad reality of this extraordinary animal’s future. With approximately 20,000 polar bears left in the world, it’s no surprise this furry mammal is classified as vulnerable by the World Wildlife Foundation (WFF) and is listed as a threatened species in the USA under the Endangered Species Act.

With the population diminishing due to poaching and habitat loss caused by climate change and settlement construction, the survival and protection of the polar bear is increasingly important.

  • Polar bears can swim at almost 10km/hr
  • When they are born polar bear cubs weigh less than 1kg and are only 12-14 inches long
  • Polar bear’s coats are water repellent and insulate them from the icy water of their habitat
  • Polar bears diets consists almost entirely of seals
