Right now many polar bear mothers need to find a place to give birth their cubs, but melting sea ice is making some traditional denning areas less suitable. They are forced to swim further out to sea, or head inland closer to humans, in search of food for their cubs as the ice disappears.
An Arctic without polar bears is unimaginable, but your donation can help WWF provide a brighter future for mother polar bears and their cubs.

- What is WWF doing to safeguard the Arctic?- Global warming is having a devastating impact on the planet as a whole. As more and more of the polar ice caps melt more and more polar bears are venturing further towards human settlements in search of food and shelter. This has tragically resulted in a number of deaths of humans and polar bears alike. As well as global warming drilling for oil in the artic is another major hazard that polar bears may face. The effects of an oil spill would be truly catastrophic on the polar bear population in the artic. Artichome is raising funds to prevent the destruction of the polar ice caps and preserve the ecosystem that is essential for polar bears to thrive.
