Protecting The Polar Bear
Global warming is causing Arctic temperatures to rise, sea ice to break up, and these majestic Polar Bears to lose the very ground they walk on.
The Effects of Global Warming
Global warming is causing Arctic temperatures to rise, sea ice to break up, and these majestic Polar Bears to lose the very ground they walk on. Some drown, having to swim increasingly exhausting distances between floes in search for food. Others - too stressed - are unable to breed. And so it is that this ultimate Arctic survivalist, designed to endure temperatures of - 50°F and thrive in some of the most inhospitable terrain on earth, needs our help.
If current climate trends continue unabated, polar bears could become extinct by the end of this century. In commemoration of Lowepro's 40th Anniversary, we have joined forces with Polar Bears International (PBI) to help raise awareness about the Polar Bear habitat and the effects of global warming. We invite you to join us on the quest. A good place to start is PBI's website at www.PolarBearsInternational.org/. Not only will you find a wealth of balanced information on issues affecting polar bears, you'll learn that as an organization, 100% of the money raised goes for the bears.
Donate. Volunteer. Get involved. The last chapter isn't written yet and we all have a hand in how this turns out.
