What is International Polar Bear Day

International Polar Bear Day was founded by our allies at Polar Bears International to coincide with the time period when moms and cubs are snuggling in dens. As part of the celebration of International Polar Bear Day, we all strive to understand the need to protect denning for polar bear families across the Arctic and subarctic.

Protecting Moms and Cubs

Born small and helpless, often weighing less than a house cat, baby polar bears are incredibly vulnerable, relying not only on their mothers for protection but also on a safe denning location. Mother polar bears and cubs rely on denning sites for those first few vulnerable months of a polar bear's life. Hence, it is crucial to protect these denning areas.

Though it might seem unbelievable for many, there are places where people might find polar bears within their own backyard, such as Churchill! As a warming climate causes polar bear ranges to adjust, people and polar bears must continue to find ways to coexist and share spaces in a manner that is safe for both species. Check out the article below to learn some of the ways that Polar Bears International is helping to facilitate better coexistence and understanding between people and polar bears.
