International Polar Bear Day 2018 – In the Name of a Polar Bear

What is International Polar Bear Day?

The International Polar Bear Day is also called the National Polar Bear Day. The day is celebrated each year in February. The sole purpose of celebrating the polar bear day is to spread the word for Arctic bear one that is likely to become endangered in the years to come should the climate continues to change at a current pace. On this day, you can probably help these Arctic predators by rising awareness on a social media, electronic media, or even giving donations to the polar bears international organization. On this day, you’ve got to think differently in that how you can practically step up and tell polar bears that yes, we do care for you!

Things to Remember on an International Polar Bear Day

It’ll be the day that is going to remind you how we as humans are threatening the very existence of remarkable creatures such as this.

  • It’ll be the day that tells us how selfish we humans have turned out to be. We talk about the worlds most endangered species yet we couldn’t manage to cut down the emission level of carbon.
  • It’ll be the day that reminds us how we humans and animals are connected globally. Our activities thousands of miles away can affect their lives and it’s not the other way round.
  • It’ll be the day that tells us why the world behaves the way it does about certain things.
  • It’ll be the day that reminds us that our words aren’t enough to protect these species—every individual no matter how far he lives ought to do something on its own that adds real value to his efforts. To put it in the words of Amstup, a leading polar bear researcher, “If you think there is nothing you can do, then you will do nothing,” he said. “So start doing something. Make a personal commitment and share what you are doing with your colleagues, your church, your synagogue and your other social networks.”
