Polar Bear Day (February 27) is an awareness day created by Polar Bears International to draw attention to how the warming Arctic climate is driving polar bears towards extinction. The World Wildlife Fund considers the marine mammals vulnerable for extinction due to loss of sea ice habitat. Warmer Arctic temperatures mean that polar bears have less opportunities to hunt, rest, and mate—contributing to malnutrition, starvation, and a declining population replacement level. Want to help the cute and furry beasts of the north? Here, a list of trustworthy polar bear charities to donate to, as well as some money-saving actions you can take to help polar bears.
