These polar bear toy animals look nice, but they are too expensive. Even the card costs too much money. If they were cheap, then I might buy them.

{Science Sunday} Polar bear feet are furred and covered with small bumps called papillae to keep them from slipping on ice. And their powerful claws can haul out a 40-90 kg (150-200 lb) seal from the water for dinner.

What does climate change sound like?

Based on surface temperature analysis from NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, the composition "Planetary Bands, Warming World" uses music to create a visceral encounter with more than a century’s worth of weather data collected across the northern half of the planet.

Silvia Logan I am so glad that Ms. Augustine and Chopsticks for Salamanders were the recipients for the PBI Conservation Grant for this year.  Salamanders should be saved along with the other animals.

Have you pledged to "pull the plug" and help with combating climate change? All single pledges combined will generate a huge contribution to saving polar species and their habitat. Small actions, big difference. http://www.poletopolecampaign.org/

The curious breakup of ice on the Hudson Bay. What does it mean for this southern population of polar bears? http://ow.ly/NxLqb
It's an ill wind that blows no good and perhaps that's the way to look at Hudson Bay this year. Recent high winds from the northwest pushed the sea ice out of that part of Hudson Bay, causing polar bear habitat to virtually vanish from the area more than a month earlier than normal.

There's a "new era" in the Arctic Ocean and it's not good for Arctic cod...or polar bears.

International research teams studying the sea ice and related species on opposite sides of the world are providing critical new knowledge that enhances our understanding of a warming Arctic. North of Svalbard in the high Barents Sea, Norwegian Polar Institute (NPI) researchers have allowed a ...

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.
