February 27th is International Polar Bear Day, a day to challenge ourselves to reduce our carbon footprint. Polar bear mothers keep their tiny cubs safe in caves they dig from ice. I want a world where there is more than enough ice for hunting grounds and caves for the mama bears, don’t you? I want this guy to know that the bears are fighting back from a reduced population, reduced size in adulthood, and reduced litter numbers. Let’s all celebrate the bears tomorrow by powering down if we can (those of you under snowdrifts probably are doing all you can already, so you get an extra blanket and hug from the rest of us). Happy Polar Bear Day from the littles here.
