How you can make a real difference

Adopt a polar bear with WWF

Climate change is the biggest threat facing the polar bear. A reduction in sea ice makes access to prey more difficult for polar bears and means many cannot put on enough weight to survive the summer season. Your money can help us work towards:

  • Conserving the Arctic region's rich biodiversity
  • Maintaining a healthy Arctic environment with undisturbed ecosystems and healthy populations of wildlife
  • Raising awareness of the threats of climate change that we all face
  • Your support will also help fund other essential WWF conservation work around the world.
