Starting Sunday, November 2nd it’s Polar Bear Week. The event coincides with the bears’ annual migration to Churchill, Manitoba, where the Hudson Bay freezes and allows them to begin hunting seals. But, for the rest of us, it is a week to celebrate the strong and mighty arctic animal, and participate in their conservation. Thanks to our friends at Polar Bears International, there is something different to do each day out of that week to celebrate:
Sunday, November 2
The Polar Bear Cam will go live. Tune in to watch the polar bear migration.
Monday, November 3
Sign a petition to help contribute to the fight against climate change, one of the largest threats to polar bears.
Tuesday, November 4
