Updated research models from the USGS say greenhouse gases are still the primary threat to polar bears.

"That is, there is basically no long-term conservation of polar bears without stopping the rise in greenhouse gases." --Steve Amstrup

Greenhouse gas emissions remain the primary threat to the preservation of polar bear populations worldwide, according to a press release from the U.S. Geological Survey. This conclusion holds true whether greenhouse gas emissions are reduced and climate warming stabilizes, or if emissions and ...

"A big take home lesson was that the Inuit and Inupiat peoples are living sustainably, eating locally, and acting as stewards of their environment as a natural extension of their culture.

"While many in the South choose to take these same steps (which we applaud!), people in the North don’t have much choice: without sustainable living, many communities would not exist." http://ow.ly/P2i82
My colleague, Geoff York, and I recently had the opportunity to convene with researchers, nonprofits, traditional knowledge holders, managers, and hunters from across North America to discuss the status of polar bear management and conservation. We met in hot and humid West Virginia, ...

Silvia Logan I hope that the polar bears get protected. They deserve to live. The Inuit should hunt other animals to eat like Arctic char or cod. Why don't they use muskoxen, wolves, or Arctic foxes for their winter coats!

Silvia Logan  Mathematics can be very useful, when you are studying marine animals in the Arctic.  It is important, when you are collecting data and using statistics for marine animals.

#11 {Countdown to Arctic Sea Ice Day – July 11} Arctic sea ice is frozen ocean water. It forms, grows, and melts in the ocean. In contrast, icebergs, glaciers, ice sheets, and ice shelves all originate on land, formed from fresh water or snow.

Sustaining a future for polar bears across the Arctic
Introduction

Polar Bears International is the only conservation organization whose sole passion and focus is on polar bears. We’re known for our cutting-edge science, inspired use of media, and relentless drive to ensure polar bears remain a part of the Arctic forever.

Vision

We envision the long-term survival of polar bears and the unique part of the world they call home. We see this iconic species roaming the sea ice for generations to come.

Mission

Our mission is to conserve polar bears and the sea ice they depend on. Through media, science, and advocacy, we work to inspire people to care about the Arctic, the threats to its future, and the connection between this remote region and our global climate.

Strategic Objectives
  1. Serve as the global resource for information regarding polar bears and their habitat.
  2. Be the leading voice on climate warming impacts to polar bears and their Arctic home while actively seeking solutions through education, advocacy, and action.
  3. Conduct, support, and share scientific research that informs polar bear conservation.
  4. Educate an international audience about polar bear conservation and provide mentorship for the actions that will help ensure their survival.
  5. Pro-actively and effectively communicate science-based information on polar bears and their conservation.
  6. Maintain transparency in fiscal management and sound business policies and practices.
  7. Follow best environmental practices as an organization, including minimizing our greenhouse gas footprint.

Explore our website to learn about what we’re doing to help sustain a future for polar bears across the Arctic.

And, please, if you like our work, consider donating to support our efforts.
