It’s Polar Bear Week 

It is Polar Bear week November 4 to 10

Polar Bears International announces for Polar Bear Week

It coincides with the fall polar bear migration to Churchill, Manitoba, where polar bears gather to wait for freeze-up on Hudson Bay so they can return to hunting seals. During Polar Bear Week, we focus on the importance of sea ice to polar bears—and why we must take action on climate change to ensure their survival.

In honor of Polar Bear Week, we’ve planned the busiest schedule of events yet and hope you’ll join us. Here’s what’s on the radar:

  • This year’s theme is to leverage our power as citizens to effect change, including voting with the climate in mind. Learn more here.
  • Our live Polar Bear Cams will continue, with more bears arriving daily.
  • We’ve teamed up with Discovery Education on two Tundra Connections webcasts: Back to Polar Bear Basics, Gr K-3, on Wed., Nov. 7th, 12 pm Central Time and Back to Polar Bear Basics, Gr 4+, on Thurs., Nov. 8th, 11:30 am Central Time. To join us, register and watch here.
  • In honor of election day in the U.S., we’ve scheduled a live chat on Tues., Nov. 6th, at 2 pm Central Time: What We Like About You – Polar Bear Citizens. You can watch it here.
  • Our website features a big hurrah for Canada’s new carbon pricing planand a post by scientist Andrew Derocher on the current status of the Western Hudson Bay population, which includes Churchill’s polar bears. One surprise? A boost from the polar vortex.
  • Finally, we’ve posted a new video, Live from the Tundra!, about our Tundra Connections webcasts and live chats. It gives you a peek into what they’re all about.
