International Polar Bear Day!Join International Polar Bear Day!Use your art to help spread awareness for this Vulnerable SpeciesThe Polar Bear, the ice bear, an apex predator of the north arctic circle. The largest of all bear species, this bear is a mighty carnivore. But as the ice the bears so desperately depend on melts at an alarming rate, disaster spells out in the murky water. Rising temperatures cause ice to melt, diminishing the bear's home and chances at catching prey. When the ice melts completely, polar bears will meet extinction below the freezing waters. Their population number ranges between 25,000-20,000 distributed among the nineteen subspecies.What is International Polar Bear Day?International Polar Bear Day(IPBD) is day to celebrate and spread awareness for the Arctic's Polar BearOur goal is to fill DeviantArt with Polar Bear themed art on February 27thYo
