Polar bears are perfectly suited to their environment.

From their furry, anti-slip feet to the tips of their small, heat-conserving ears, these impressive animals roam across vast areas – sometimes up to 600,000 sq km – to find food and mates. To coincide with International Polar Bear Day, we’d like to invite you to get to know more about this magnificent animal. We've got four simple - and fun - ways to show your support; from learning more about this amazing species, to crafting a polar bear inspired lantern or ordering one of our striking polar bear badges!
