2016 was hot, hot, hot - breaking records for the third year in a row, with impacts that reached beyond the Arctic and around the globe. #saveourseaice
Surface temperatures are heading toward levels that many scientists believe will pose a threat to both the natural world and to human civilization.

If the Arctic ice continues to melt at an alarming rate every year, the polar bears and all the other marine animals will have a bleak future.

#ScienceSunday: #Polarbears are well adapted for the #Arctic climate. Their feet are furred and covered with small bumps called papillae to keep them from slipping on ice. Their sense of smell is powerful for detecting seals. And their powerful claws can haul out a 40-90 kg (150-200 lb) seal from the water for dinner. #SaveOurSeaIce #PolarBearScience

These beautiful polar bears need fur and papillae in their paws, so that they can walk in the cold snow and slippery ice.

#ScienceSunday: While short by our standards, #polarbears are considered long-lived animals. In the wild, polar bears live an average 15 to 18 years, although biologists have tagged a few bears in their early 30s. In captivity, some long-lived bears reach their mid- to late 30s. Debby, a captive bear in Canada, lived to be 42. Learn more about polar bears on our website: http://www.polarbearsinternational.org

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.
