Happy International Polar Bear Day - February 27, 2013

This post should have been done yesterday as THAT was International Polar Bear Day, but I thought I was going to include this photo and the following link in my next post, but as I started to write I decided on doing two separate posts.   


My Happy International Polar Bear Day 
greeting :)  Celebrating my precious
Polar Friends, Ulu and Pike!
I love you pretty girls!

Please visit Polar Bear International's website to learn more about the plight of the Polar Bear's who live in the wild.  There is also a challenge that the link will take you to.  This challenge was for yesterday, but the plight is dire and making a difference everyday would help to Save these Bears.  Thank you!

  1. Nice pictures! They look so playful but bitie, of course.
    I heard an interesting podcast from Science Friday about pollution in Alaska. The cost of importing everything incurs a cost on fuel oil and so people end up burning wood just to stay warm and it creates more pollution in some cases as China's recent hazardous levels! Who would have thought that Alaska, last frontier, has THAT much pollution! This of course has an effect on the climate there and hence habitat for polar bears and pretty much everything.

No one person can gather all thats out there to learn themselves, so I'm grateful to you and others that share your knowledge. I'm glad to have created a forum to do that. ... Happy you liked the pix! They are Pretty Girls and yes probably a bit bitey!

  2. Happy Polar Bear Day to my two alltime favorite Polar Bears, Pike Poo and Uls...... They are beautiful and incredible. The zoo should have done it up Big Time for these girls. They have kept the visitors charmed for over 30 yrs, quite a milestone. Love the photos!!!! I love you Pike and Uls..... many many many many more Polar Days to come!!!!!!!!

    1. @Lee- Thank you for your comment. Yes the Zoo should have done something. I recently saw some old tweets they made that alluded that they were doing something. I want to blog about that BS too. Our Polars are not only ambassedors, they have reached milestone Birthdays.
