Scientists predict that without urgent action, American polar bears could face extinction. These large marine mammals spend much of their time on arctic sea ice, hundreds of miles from land. But a changing climate is destabilizing the polar bears’ habitat, and a growing interest in arctic oil threatens the region with a potential spill.

How Your Adoption Helps Polar Bears

Your adoption helps Defenders' work to protect the fragile Arctic by fighting climate change through vital research and policy work, advocating a ban on all drilling in the region, and pushing for polar bears to gain the full protection they deserve under the Endangered Species Act.

All donations support our work to protect and restore the wildlife and wild places you care about.
