Polar bear habitats across the Arctic are melting away as carbon dioxide levels in our atmosphere reach record highs. The sea ice polar bears depend on for moving around, finding a mate and hunting is disappearing at an alarming rate, placing their survival under threat.
Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions are the number one cause for the loss of Arctic sea ice. Raising levels of CO2 since the late 1970s have warmed the globe and shrunk the Arctic sea ice by over 40% making polar bears the first to suffer.
If we're going to save polar bears we have to protect the sea ice they rely on. We have to reduce our carbon dioxide emissions. And better yet, pull existing CO2 out of the atmosphere by planting trees.
Our planting partners have already planted over 134,000 trees, all made possible by our growing Treehuggers movement. This translates to over 6.2 million pounds of carbon dioxide absorbed from our atmosphere. Your contribution makes a real difference, changing the fate of these amazing living beings.
