Honoring Polar Bears With Environment & Conservation Grants

Environment and conservation grants provide funding for organizations protecting our environment. And, in truth, many of those organizations rely on GrantWatch to locate grants geared toward research, investigation, and sustainability with regard to environmental concerns. Our environment provides everything we need to thrive. It follows then, that we act as stewards for the earth and strive to protect animal populations, especially those whose habitats are currently shrinking. With this purpose in mind, we turn our collective attention to the Polar Bear. Every February 27th, it falls to us to spread awareness of the hardships polar bears and other endangered species face while educating readers about how to reduce our carbon footprint, making a lasting impact.

Polar Bear Day & Environmental Conservation Awareness

Building awareness is the first step to solving a problem. Not only does Polar Bear Day builds awareness for the needs of polar bears, but our environment as a whole. By definition, environmental conservation is the protection, preservation, management, restoration of natural environments and the ecological communities that inhabit them. For example, did you know that you must use a reusable plastic grocery bag over 25 times to reduce our carbon footprint? In truth, understanding conservation is the responsibility of everyone. In short, earth is shared by every living being.

Climate change is a huge threat to polar bears’ existence and it’s up to us to take action and protect their future. Our focus is on raising funds to help protect moms and cubs, giving them the best possible chance of survival (through) conservation efforts across the Arctic. On average, only about half of all cubs reach adulthood, with even lower survival rates in the most vulnerable populations.
