THE STORY:

Polar bears are essential to their ecosystem and a have both a direct and indirect impact on the human populations which still depend on the Arctic to survive. In turn, the Arctic itself is essential to life on Earth, affecting the overall climate of the planet and its currents. Saving the polar bear isn't just about this one very special species: it is about saving their home and helping the planet help us. Polar Bears International is a non-profit organisation that does just that. It provides funding for research, projects and informs communities about polar bears and their habitat. On their website, they wrote: "Vision We envision the long-term survival of polar bears and the unique part of the world they call home. We see this iconic species roaming the sea ice for generations to come. Mission Our mission is to conserve polar bears and the sea ice they depend on. Through media, science, and advocacy, we work to inspire people to care about the Arctic, the threats to its future, and the connection between this remote region and our global climate. Strategic Objectives Serve as the global resource for information regarding polar bears and their habitat. Be the leading voice on climate warming impacts to polar bears and their Arctic home while actively seeking solutions through education, advocacy, and action. Conduct, support, and share scientific research that informs polar bear conservation. Educate an international audience about polar bear conservation and provide mentorship for the actions that will help ensure their survival. Proactively and effectively communicate science-based information on polar bears and their conservation. Maintain transparency in fiscal management and sound business policies and practices. Follow best environmental practices as an organization, including minimizing our greenhouse gas footprint."
