Last week, keeper Emilee traveled to Churchill, Canada to participate in Polar Bears International's Climate Alliance Program. Emilie brought along a plush polar bear (handmade by another keeper here!) and dozens of pledges signed by Zoo visitors who committed to change their habits to help save polar bears. As she traveled and studied the devastating effects of climate change on polar bears, Emilee's bear posed with pledges all the way from Maryland. Would you make small changes to help polar bears, too?
