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.
