Happy International Polar Bear Day! This special day happens every February 27th! This global event draws attention to the challenges polar bears face in a warming Arctic—and how we each can help.
We were so happy to team up with POLAR BEARS INTERNATIONAL in support of polar bear conservation! We learned so much from them! Did you know that polar bears rely on sea ice to hunt seals, breed, and in some cases to den? Sea ice is both a platform from which polar bears hunt seals, and the basis of the food chain the polar bear tops. Algae forms beneath and within sea ice and is eaten by copepods. Fish eat copepods and seals eat fish. Blubber-rich seals are the mainstay of the polar bear's diet.
We hope you enjoy this momentous day!
