#ThePolarBear

Polar bears like this one need several hundred pounds of meat to survive.

They primarily eat seals and they struggle when they are stranded for long periods of time on land, without a sea ice platform from which to hunt. "When scientists say bears are going extinct, I want people to realize what it looks like," says photographer Paul Nicklen @NatGeo

With these images, @CristinaMittermeier want to wake the world up to the imminence of climate change and to how it will affect wildlife and people for decades to come. For solutions on how each and everyone can make a positive impact on this planet.

As a result of Climate change it seems that we're witnessing the last generation of #polar #bears.

Horrifying fact: The last time the earth had this high concentration of atmospheric CO2, sea levels were 240 feet higher.

We know what to do:
✅Stop using #petrolum products: 58% of climate change
✅Stop using #animals for food: 42% of climate change

But we're not doing it. And, as a result, everything will suffer. Needlessly

Stop Trump's Plan to Expand Drilling Off U.S. Coasts! Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke recently announced plans to dramatically expand offshore oil drilling in all oceans along U.S. coasts. This would include allowing new oil leasing along California's shores for the first time in more than 30 years and in the remote Arctic. Act now to demand that Secretary Zinke protect our oceans and climate by scrapping this nearsighted plan. Formal public comments on the plan are due by March 9 and can be sent online here:

It is true that we don’t know what caused this animal to starve but we are certain that unless we curb carbon emissions, sea ice will continue to disappear and many more bears will starve.

#野生大發現 #115個新物種
大湄公河區域喺世界上無數奇異物種嘅家園,2016年研究人員就在該地區發現了115前所未見的物種,由兇猛嘅鱷蜥到傻頭傻腦嘅菊頭蝠。可是,捕獵及非法野生生物貿易對區內生態造成嚴重威脅,不少物種可能未被發現,就已經無聲無息地消失了。In 2016, researchers in the Greater Mekong region introduced us to 115 new species unknown to science, from a crocodile lizard to a horseshoe bat. However, poaching and the illegal wildlife trade puts significant pressure on the region’s wildlife, meaning many species could be lost before they are even discovered.

Crystal clear tide pools🐚

Secretary Ryan Zinke recently announced plans to open 90% of U.S. coastlines to drilling. Alaskan coastlines and Arctic, the West coast, East coast, and Gulf of Mexico. Oil and gas drilling poses very high risks of leakage, and we can't have that hurting our ocean and coasts. If an oil spill happened, which would be very likely, it would devastate sea life, harm local fisheries, and would NOT be pretty. 😟

Rallies are being held across the country to protest Zinkes plan! Search for one near you at ignitechange.org or https://map.ignite.biologicaldiversity.org

The fossil fuel industry earns billions from drilling and greatly harming Earth. Yet they are rarely held accountable. Opening miles of beautiful coast is unnecessary, because there are sustainable solutions. 🗺️🐳🐟

The tweet on the top was sent out shortly before the New Year by our very own Idiot-In-Chief. The picture on the bottom is of a dying, starving polar bear captured by @CristinaMittermeier for National Geographic. As Cristina and her conservation team watched, the polar bear, atrophied by starvation, staggered towards a fishing camp for some trash to eat—a piece of foam from the seat of an old snowmobile. His fate is unknown, but it’s a good guess that he died shortly after this was taken.
Polar bears primarily eat seals and hunt for them on the sea ice platforms. As sea ice platforms continue to disappear due to GLOBAL WARMING, this species—along with many others—are facing disaster. The more carbon emissions we continue to pump out, the more animals will die and the more our earth will be destroyed. The fact that Trump continues to deny climate change in order to help the oil executives that line his pockets is ATROCIOUS. I’m not convinced that he’s truly stupid enough to deny the facts of climate change, simply greedy enough to ignore them since conservation efforts would take money away from his big oil buddies. How can you deny the global temperature rise? The fact that 16 of the 17 warmest years on record have all occurred in the years since 2001? The fact that oceans have risen 8 inches in the last century and the rate in the last two decades is nearly double that of the last century? How can you deny the declining arctic sea ice, the retreating glaciers and the arctic ice sheets that have decreased in size by MILES?
We need to take action to save our planet not for ourselves, but for our children. Trump’s disrespect for climate conservation is sickening yet unsurprising. That’s why it’s up to us. PLEASE please focus on this issue in 2018!!! If we don’t act now, it will soon be too late. Of course, we can only do so much as individuals which is why we ALSO need to vote for elected officials who will HOLD CORPORATIONS ACCOUNTABLE for their astronomical pollution output and toxic waste.

Trump proposal would allow oil and gas drilling along most of U.S. coastline ::::::::::::::::::::::::
Nearly the entire U.S. coastline - from Alaska to Florida to New England - would be opened to offshore drilling under a proposal by the Trump administration, a dramatic shift from previous administrations that limited offshore oil and gas production primarily to the Gulf of Mexico.
Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke said Thursday that up to 90 percent of the Outer Continental Shelf, which begins roughly three miles off the U.S. mainland, is under consideration for oil and gas lease sales beginning next year and extending through 2024. That includes almost the entire Pacific and Atlantic coastlines, as well as the Eastern Gulf of Mexico.
Contact your representatives and Governor, no more offshore drilling! Tell Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke that the public has spoken: no more offshore drilling!

#BREAKING: Today, the Trump administration announced its plans to open nearly all U.S. federal waters to offshore drilling activities. This plan opens the floodgates to dirty and dangerous offshore drilling, threatening coastal economies that rely on clean and healthy oceans. This radical offshore drilling plan is a clear example of politics over people, ignoring widespread local and state opposition. Together, we must stand united against this grave attack, before it’s too late.

Tell Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke that the public has spoken: no more offshore drilling! Link to form in my BIO. ::::::::::::::::::::::::
Trump’s Department of the Interior has proposed the largest expansion of offshore drilling ever -- expanding drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, the Atlantic Ocean, the Pacific Ocean, and the Arctic.

Trump isn't doing this to please his constituents -- in fact, governors of states like North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, New Jersey, Maryland, Florida, Oregon, and California have explicitly opposed drilling off their coasts. Instead, this is a blatant gift to the oil companies that have bankrolled his campaign and staffed his administration.

If Trump's plan becomes reality, spills will be inevitable -- and devastating. In 2010, the Deepwater Horizon oil spill damaged 1,313 miles of coastline. That's more than the entire length of California, or half the Atlantic coast. Offshore oil spills happen frequently, devastating marine environments, commercial fishing industries, and tourism businesses. Even without spills, offshore oil causes pollution.
This gift to Big Oil and Gas is an attempt to overturn protections put in place for the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans and hits reset on the plan the Obama administration completed in 2016. At that time, millions of people had spoken out in support of protecting our coasts. Tell Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke that the public has spoken: no more offshore drilling! Link to form in my BIO.

The bigger the thing, the harder it is to fix.
The Arctic is massive, and we have all but broken it.

If we respond to the destruction of a vital piece of Earth's life support system by letting the oil industry look for more of the problem there, we will categorically lose any chance we have to stabilize the climate, or even slow down intense climate impacts.

Today I have a small request. These pictures represent the lush and vast Arctic Refuge. What you may or may not know, the United States House of Representatives will vote today on the 2018 tax bill. Attached to this tax bill is a rider ALLOWING for oil drilling in this vital and protective habitat for thousands of animals. The Refuge MUST be protected, to ensure balance in our already precarious ecosystem and keep from any pillaging and profiteering. PLEASE take a few minutes (it’s not a arduous task I promise) and head over to @wildernesssociety page. There is a link in the bio to click on to direct you to your individual representative’s office. Urge them to vote NO to the 2018 tax bill or ANY legislation that would allow drilling in the Arctic. Thank you, friends..please feel free to share! @nrdc_org @greenpeaceusa @sierraclub @sea_legacy @earthguardians .

The prescient effects of #climatechange are standing out more and more each day. @natgeo photographers @paulnicklen and @cristinamittermeier (founders of @sea_legacy) posit a plea for peace admidst the increasing decline of the Arctic ice shelves, with haunting footage of a starving polar bear forced to rummage through the remains of human settlements for food in lieu of food supply along Arctic coastlines. The effects of the damage done are showing where people can't see . . . until we see it. A reminder to be aware, be vocal, and realize each person can contribute to the preservation of our planet. In little ways we can help a lot.

این مائیم، انسانها!
ما به خودمان رحم نمی کنیم، چه برسد به حیوان ها، این مائیم، تلخ و ترسناک و خوش ادا!
شیک و خوش بو و با سواد!
مائیم که فریدون کنار را به خون کشیدیم!
مائیم که به کوچ هم رحم نمی کنیم و تیر میزنیم و می نازیم به شکارهامان ، خورشت پرندگان رو به انقراض را سرو می کنیم!
مائیم که بغض می کنیم و گریه و ناله و از تنهایی ها حرف می زنیم و از هم شماره مشاورهامان را در مهمانی ها می گیریم!
ما آدمهای ترسناک... ویدئوی که عکاس نشنال
جئوگرافیک منتشر کرده از یه خرس قطبی که پیر نیست و به خاطر گرمایش زمین و تغییرات اکوسیستمی قطب که مسبب اصلیش انسان هان از گرسنگی و سوءتغذیه دچار آتروفی شده و نهایت تا چند روز آینده دووم بیاره تمام گروه مستند نگاری موقع دیدن این خرس به شدت تحت تاثیر قرار گرفتن تا جایی که هیچکدوم بدون گریه کارشون رو انجام نمیدادند. دانشمندان معتقدند نهایت تا صد سال دیگه ٢۵ هزار خرس قطبی میمیرن و نسلشون منقرض میشه

Earth warming is a threat that Earth and all ecosystems threaten to survive on a natural basis, from the human being standing at the top of the pyramid of the natural cycle, to other animals and plants. The only way to save many scientists is to stop the growing trend of warming the earth by reducing greenhouse gases and using more clean and more environmentally friendly energy.

Sí, no todo es crisis política, social, económica o religiosa, he aquí un oso polar que muere de hambre, porque su hábitat se encuentra alterada, porque no respetamos los ecosistemas, porque todo se viene abajo y seguimos cómo si nada pasara. ¿Y la crisis de los seres vivos vamos a discutirla también?

This photo has been passed around quite a bit this week. A painful look at a polar bear in its final days, due to climate change and its now rapidly decreasing habitat. The melting of glaciers may eventually impact humans, but in the meantime we see some of our beloved species suffering. #itstimeforchange #raiseawareness #risingseas

Nosso time @Sea_Legacy observou enquanto ele cambaleava dolorosamente para o campo de pesca abandonado o qual estávamos o observando e o qual ele encontrou algum lixo para comer - um pedaço de espuma do banco de uma "moto de neve" (snowmobile) como descobrimos mais tarde.
As pessoas perguntaram por que não conseguimos evitar, por que não o alimentamos. Além de ser ilegal alimentar a animais da vida selvagem, ursos polares como esse precisam de várias centenas de quilos de carne para sobreviver. Eles comem principalmente focas e lutam quando estão presos por longos períodos de tempo na terra, sem uma plataforma de gelo do mar a partir da qual possam caçar. Nós não possuímos uma arma e não tivemos comida. Literalmente, não havia nada que pudéssemos fazer por ele, já que estávamos a centenas de quilômetros da comunidade Inuit (membros da nação indígena esquimó que habitam as regiões árticas do Canadá, do Alasca e da Gronelândia) mais próxima.
O que nós poderíamos ter feito? O que fizemos foi pressionar nossas lágrimas sabendo que esta cena ajudaria a conectar um público global ao maior problema que enfrentamos hoje com uma espécie como esta. É verdade que não sabemos o que causou a este animal fome, mas estamos certos de que, a menos que diminuam as emissões de carbono, o gelo marinho continuará a desaparecer e muitos outros ursos morrerão de fome.
Com essas imagens, queremos despertar o mundo para a iminência das mudanças climáticas e sobre como isso afetará a vida selvagem e as pessoas nas próximas décadas.

Photo by @CristinaMittermeier // This is what a starving polar bear looks like. Weak muscles, atrophied by extended starvation could barely hold him up. Our @Sea_Legacy team watched as he painfully staggered towards the abandoned fishing camp from which we were observing and found some trash to eat—a piece of foam from the seat of a snowmobile, as we later found out. People have asked why we couldn’t help it, why we didn’t feed it. In addition to being illegal to feed wildlife, polar bears like this one need several hundred pounds of meat to survive. They primarily eat seals and they struggle when they are stranded for long periods of time on land, without a sea ice platform from which to hunt. We didn’t have a weapon and we didn’t have any food. There literally was nothing we could do for him as we were hundreds of miles from the nearest Inuit community. What could we have done? What we did do was push through our tears knowing that this footage was going to help connect a global audience to the biggest issue facing us as a species today. It is true that we don’t know what caused this animal to starve but we are certain that unless we curb carbon emissions, sea ice will continue to disappear and many more bears will starve. With these images, we want to wake the world up to the imminence of climate change and to how it will affect wildlife and people for decades to come.

Je ne peux pas avec cela, il me remplit de colère, d'indignation, mais en même temps, la douleur et l'impuissance. Je me sens impuissant parce que je sais que je ne peux rien faire pour ce pauvre animal. Douleur parce que mes espèces mêmes et ses usines ont fait de si terribles changements dans l'environnement, et puisque cet ours polaire est en train de mourir, des centaines et des centaines d'animaux le font aussi. MERCI LES USINES, MERCI L'HUMANITÉ D'AVOIR DÉTRUIT LE MONDE.

This is what a starving polar bear looks like. Why didn't we feed him? Read the story here:#Repost @natgeo ・・・

#虛弱的北極熊 😢
全球暖化令海冰融化,北極熊難以利用海冰獵食。有保育組織拍到一隻瀕死的北極熊,虛弱地在垃圾桶翻找食物,令人心痛!科學家警告,海洋升溫速度比預期快,國際自然保育聯盟(IUCN)亦預計,2050年北極熊數量將會因棲息地銳減而減少三成。人類必須攜手從生活中減排,應對氣候變化! The sea ice polar bears use to hunt for seals, their main source of food, is melting due to global warming. That’s why they are forced to find food in human settlements. IUCN expects the number of polar bears will decline by 30% by 2050. Together we can combat climate change to save polar bears.
