What Can We Do to Help Save the Polar Bears?

It is true – if things continue as they're right now, our kids can grow up in an age where there are no polar bears.  The Arctic is melting. The pace at which it's warming is double that of the rest of the planet.  The more snow that melts, the longer shadowy sea which gets vulnerable, which brings more warmth, and accelerate the melting much more.

Without ice, polar bears don't have any platform to stand while they search seal.  Polar bears aren't efficient land seekers, even though that is where they're heading.  Inefficient land searching abilities will lead to hungry cubs and insufficient reproduction numbers.

So what do we do to help save polar bears?

Everything and anything.  To start with, it will most likely be beneficial to prevent fishing in the Arctic to guard the couple polar bears which are abandoned.  Renewable energy resources are imperative.  Renewable energy will reduce our greenhouse gas emissions AND permit us to prevent drilling at the Arctic and further disrupting the ecosystem.

We must also begin taking smaller steps in your home.  Walk or carpool when it's possible.  Recycle.  Reuse.  Decrease your own waste.  1 easy means to do so is to begin using reusable shopping bags rather than plastic bags and start composting a few of your garbage.

You will believe you're just 1 individual and cannot actually make a huge difference.  On the other hand, the effect comes when most people start doing small things to help the environment.
