Our friends at the Oregon Zoo put a spin on the "bundle up for polar bears" theme to demonstrate that a few degrees will make a BIG difference for polar bears... but probably not in what you wear! Thanks for taking the #ThermostatChallenge to #saveourseaice! Happy #PolarBearDay

From the Alaska Wilderness League: "Love polar bears like we do?! Polar Bears International's annual International Polar Bear Day celebration takes place every year on February 27th – that’s today. This year they’re asking all of us to join in by celebrating it as a day of action to reduce carbon emissions. We can all start by adjusting our thermostat a few degrees to save some electricity and show our commitment to greenhouse gas reductions. According to the EPA, heating and cooling accounts for roughly half of the energy consumption in an average American home! Staff from the League and Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance teamed up for the challenge! Learn more at http://bit.ly/polarbearday_toolkit ‪#‎PolarBearDay‬” #saveourseaice
