THINK GLOBAL, ACT LOCAL!
POLAR BEARS are under particular stress: the ice sheet is melting, making the access to food more difficult. Chemical pollution has already impacted bears fertility. Hunting is still an option in many countries.<o:p></o:p>
BEAR FRIENDS will extend its work in Sub Arctic and Arctic regions through Alaska, Canada, Greenland, Norway, Russia. <o:p></o:p>
BEAR FRIENDS will be on a “road show” through these territories, lecturing in schools, community halls, and other places where people will take benefit of a better knowledge on bears and their ecosystems. <o:p></o:p>
THE BEAR FRIENDS MISSION
</o:p>The mission of the BEAR FRIENDS is to connect people and bears through education and conservation . BEAR FRIENDS promote the beauty and the fragility of bears, inspiring conservation of bears and wild places.<o:p></o:p>
Over the last 100 years, human activities have harmed fragile ecosystems like the arctic pack ice, home of the POLAR BEAR, and the boreal forest, home of both the brown and the black bear.<o:p></o:p>
The need for our continuing work to benefit the bears and their habitats is growing in a rapid pace. With your help we can join together in a growing educational and conservation partnership.
