Our 1THING featured organization for February, 2017, Polar Bears Intenational is made up of volunteers and scientists working together to inform about the plight of the polar bears and the environment they live in.
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.
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.
