Big, powerful & yet incredibly vulnerable to threats like climate change

Magnificent polar bears depend on sea ice to hunt and raise their young. But climate change is affecting it. As waters warm, the ice is freezing later and melting sooner. These precious animals desperately need our help. Their home is shrinking. By 2050, polar bear numbers may decline by around 30% due to the rapid loss of sea ice.  

 

Your adoption will help WWF to work with governments, industries and individuals to help reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. We encourage them to switch to renewable energy – to help minimise climate change and the warming that threatens animals like polar bears, their food sources and their habitat.

 

Adopt today, and we'll take you on a journey to learn more about polar bears through our regular updates - exclusive only to our monthly adopters. We'll also keep you up to date on how your monthly gifts are helping to secure a brighter future for polar bears.
