The Big Melt – We Love the North

Arctic foxes have been disappearing from the southern edge of the tundra because of climate change. Changes in global weather cause sea ice to shrink. That’s bad news for the arctic foxes and other arctic animals because they need the sea ice and the tundra to survive!

In this episode of ‘The Big Melt’ podcast, they discuss how climate change affects animals in the arctic.  Listen here.

Polar Bears International (PBI)

PBI exists to help secure a future for polar bears across the Arctic. Polar bears are mighty creatures with fragile futures. PBI is made up of a small group of passionate conservationists, scientists, and volunteers­­.

PBI’s missing is to converse polar bears and the sea ice they depend on and to be a leading voice about global climate change impacts. Their story moves beyond the plight of the polar bears because they know that humans are not averse to the visible threats to our global ecosystem.
