Polar Bear Day Dance Mob Recap

Yesterday was International Polar Bear Day and I invited the Wizard101 community to join me in-game, to celebrate the event in a fun way: a dance mob with our Polar Bear Cub pets!

The attendance was greater than I anticipated and it was simply amazing to see so many Wizards join me for this honorable cause. It was also a great way to start the weekend, taking a break from all the assignments for Professor Drake and show Penny Dreadful that it's important to have fun, too.

A big thank you to Professor Greyrose and Dworgyn for believing in my vision and allowing me to make a fun in-game event for everyone! Also, thanks to my fellow Community Leaders for spreading the word, and to everyone who supported the idea and encouraged me from the get-go. Last but not least, thank you to all the Wizards who danced with me yesterday. You are all incredibly amazing!

International Polar Bear Day

As an ecologist, I care about the conservation of the environment and all the species that live in it. That is why I decided to raise awareness to the importance of preserving and protecting vulnerable species, such as the polar bear, and the habitat they thrive in.

Threats to the survival of polar bears
Majestic creature of the far north, the polar bear is the world's largest terrestrial carnivore. It is currently listed as a vulnerable species by the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

The loss of sea ice habitat from climate change is the biggest threat to the survival of polar bears. Other key threats include polar bear-human conflicts, overharvesting and industrial impacts. Polar bears depend on sea ice as a platform from which to hunt seals, rest and breed.

Why is the polar bear so important?
  • Polar bears help us gain an understanding of what is happening throughout the Arctic, as a polar bear at risk may signal something is wrong elsewhere in the arctic marine ecosystem;
  • Because they are at the top of the food chain, they are particularly sensitive indicators of the health of the Arctic ecosystem and maintain the balance of that very ecosystem.
When and where?
Friday, February 27th, will be the International Polar Bear Day and I will host a dance mob in-game to celebrate this day. The dance mob will take place in the Wizard City Commons on Scarecrow realm, on February 27th ,2015, at 4:00 PM CST.

Feel free to join the International Polar Bear Day Event, bring your Polar Bear Cub pets if you can and invite your friends!
