Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Polar Bear Day

Polar bears are found in the Arctic region, primarily in Canada, Alaska (USA), Greenland, Russia and Norway. The current global population of polar bears is estimated to be around 22,000 to 31,000, however, the numbers can vary depending on the subpopulation, location and timing of the estimation. The population of polar bears in Canada is estimated to be around 15,000-20,000, Alaska (USA) around 3,000-4,000, Greenland around 2,000-2,500, Russia around 4,000-5,000 and Norway around 3-4.

Polar bears are considered a vulnerable species, with their population declining due to the loss of sea ice caused by climate change. The loss of sea ice reduces their ability to hunt for food and reproduce, and it also causes them to burn more energy to stay warm. The polar bear population is projected to decline by 30% over the next three generations. Conservation efforts, such as reducing greenhouse gas emissions and protecting their habitats, are needed to ensure their survival.
