This week's #fanphototuesday goes to @fredgranath! If you don't follow his feed, we highly recommend it! "Food is sparse in the Arctic, and patience is a virtue. A polar bear can stand like this, completely still, for hours looking down at a seal's breathing hole, waiting for it to appear. The seal keeps dozens of breathing holes open throughout an area trying to avoid predators." Tag your photos with #saveourseaice for a chance to be featured!!

CJ Carter, representing PBI in Lima, sent this report: TALKS AS SEEN FROM THE TIENDA. From taxi drivers to hairdressers, folks here in Peru are tuned into the talks. Yesterday brought passionate speeches from folks like Ban Ki-Moon, John Kerry, Felipe Calderon and even a memo from Pope Francis, all calling for cooperation and agreement. As of yesterday morning pledges to the Green Climate Fund have reached $10 billion and one day of the ‪#‎COP20‬ talks remain. With only one paragraph of the draft ADP complete, let's hope today is productive .‪#‎saveourseaice‬ @youth_AC ‪#‎UNFCCC‬ @UBCscarp
