SOS! - That's Save Our Sea Ice in Polar Bear Language
Polar Bears International’s Save Our Sea Ice campaign focuses attention on the challenges polar bears face in a warming Arctic and the part each of us can play in stopping climate change.
The campaign includes a Carbon Fee Petition that asks the U.S. to show world leadership by setting a fair price on carbon, paving the way to a low-carbon future. It also features a series of conservation challenges that result in energy savings and community action. We’ve linked our challenges to earth awareness days, but you can launch them at any time:
- International Polar Bear Day, February 27, 2016 - Take our Thermostat Challenge
- Earth Day, April 22, 2016 - Take our Transportation Challenge
- Arctic Sea Ice Day, July 15, 2016 - Make a Green House Grocery List
- Polar Bear Week, October 30-November 5, 2016 - Take the Next Step through energy-saving actions!
Visit our Save Our Sea Ice Community page to make pledges for the bears and share photos of your actions.
Also check out our infographics page to see how individual actions scale up.
To save polar bear habitat, we need to greatly reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Promising shifts are underway in sectors including transportation, energy usage, and food production—all of which have an impact.
You can become part of the momentum for change by speaking up in support of policies and processes that will help us transition to a sustainable society. It’s also important to modify your own habits and take action in your community in support of greener choices—from bikes lanes to farmer’s markets—that make a low-carbon lifestyle easier.
