Iâ€™ve broached this subject before, but I think itâ€™s well worth mentioning again because now you can register your angst about the fate of the Arctic polar bears and send a message to Canadian Prime Minister Steven Harper.
As you know, temperatures are rising in the Arctic at twice the rate of anywhere else on the planet, which severely affects the entire ecosystem. Since 1978, the ice has shrunk by more than 8 per cent per decade.
What you may not know is that polar bears are the worldâ€™s largest land-based predator. While this should put them in an enviable position, they are actually in danger of extinction. Because the Arctic has less packed ice, polar bears have less space on which to hunt for food.
Therefore, I am asking you to call on the Government of Canada to protect the habitat of these bears by taking decisive action to stop those things that cause global warming. It doesnâ€™t matter where you live in the world. Please let Prime Minister Steven Harper know that we care about the polar bears.
