You're Bay the Polar Bear!

When you are happy, you light up the world. Everyone watches you because you’re an exciting, creative and adventurous creature. But you are also more sensitive than some realise, and feel deeply. If you get sad or lonely sometimes, remember that you are loved and worthy of love, and things will get better.


Information about polar bears

Polar bears are found in the wild in Canada, Russia, Norway, Greenland, and the US (in Alaska). They are carnivorous and feed on seals. Polar bears have adapted to stay warm in freezing temperatures, and have a layer of underfur topped by guard hairs. Each strand of guard hair is transparent and reflects light from the environment – which is why, in snowy places, polar bears appear white. These magnificent animals are threatened by climate change as their habitat and hunting grounds are shrinking as the ice melts. The World Wildlife Fund has listed polar bears as vulnerable because their numbers are decreasing. To help polar bears, here are a few simple things you can do:

• Recycle!
• Turn off lights, computers, and other electronic devices when you’re not using them.
• Don’t leave your mobile charging when it’s already at 100%.
• When you can, walk, ride a bike, or use public transport instead of driving.

Information about giant panda bears

Native to mountainous areas of China, giant panda bears are also called Oriental or Asian bears. Their striking black-and-white appearance has made them popular the world over, but these animals are endangered due to habitat loss, hunting, and climate change. Pandas eat bamboo and are shy creatures that usually avoid contact with people.

Information about sun bears

Sun bears have brown fur with a white or yellow crescent on their chests. Found in tropical rainforests in Asia and Africa, sun bears are most active at night and feed on honey, insects, lizards, rodents, and fruit. The IUCN has classified sun bears as vulnerable, as habitat loss and hunting have caused their numbers to diminish. To find out more about sun bears, visit the links below:

Information about Grizzly bears

Found in North America, Grizzly bears are named for their “frosted, or grizzled, coats” (World Wide Fund for Nature 2017), and are a subspecies of Brown bears. They are resourceful creatures that consume fish, deer, berries, roots, fungi, elk and insects. Grizzly bears are threatened by poaching and habitat destruction.
