International Polar Bear Day 27th February 2021
Every 27 February, International Polar Bear Day is celebrated to raise awareness about the concerns the Polar Bear face and how we can reduce carbon footprints. Polar Bears International is planning an International Polar Bear Day to raise awareness of the effects on polar bear habitats of global warming and lowered ice. The day helps people to look for ways to minimize their carbon emissions, for example by downgrading or driving less thermostatic. The day was also used to promote energy-efficient house insulation.
A recent research estimated that the majority of polar bears in the Arctic are extinct by 2100 if their present trend remained greenhouse gas emissions. Polar bears will also be impacted by reproductive loss by 2040, which will reduce the amount of offspring needed to sustain population.
In addition to body mass, researchers modelled the use of energy for polar bears to draw the number of days they can last without food before the rates of survival for adults and cubes decrease. After this the thresholds were combined with the expected number of future days off sea ice to identify how and where populations in the Arctic will be affected.
Importance of Polar Bear Day
Polar Bear International is a group of conservationists, scientists, and volunteers working to educate the public about the Arctic region’s impacts of climate change. They focus more specifically on how global warming is slowly destroying the polar bear habitat and adversely affecting its population.

Some Facts about Polar Bear you should know
The Polar Bears are not white in fact, polar bears have hollow and black skin with colorless hairs. To help keep them warm, their hollow fur reflects light and traps the heat of the sun.
Polar bears are called aquatic mammals, equivalent to whales, seals and dolphins.
It is known that the polar bear, along with the Alaska brown bear, are the world’s greatest land predator.
Although the survival temperatures in the Arctic are adaptable, they can plunge below -50 °C but overheat too. This gets more dangerous as the temperature rises above zero and up to 20°C in the summer and launcher.
The Polar bear loves to bath in snow when their coats gets dirty they rub and roll around the snow to clean their body.
The Polar bears are also great swimmers, they can swim around 10 km per hour comfortably (6mph). To propel themselves through the water and their back legs to steer, they use their large front paws. In fact, their Latin name means ‘sea bear.’
