During a trip to the Toronto Zoo last week I was lucky enough to catch one of their female Polar Bears swimming under the water.
We probably don’t need any further proof that we are destroying the environment with our actions, but here’s one more anyways: polar bears are having to go on epic journeys just to find some ice.
[Polar Bears Play on Hudson Bay, north of Churchill Manitoba] Environmentalists for a long time now have been trying to enhance the status of polar bears from ‘threatened’ to ‘endangered’ thereby allowing more protection to the species. But a federal judge last week upheld the listing to threatened under the Endangered Species Act (ESA).
The orphaned polar bear cub that was found in the Alaskan Slopes by employees of ConocoPhillips is soon to begin its new life at the Louisville zoo where it will be brought by the end of June.
