Organized by Polar Bears International, a leading polar bear dean research organization, International Polar Bear Day is an annual event celebrated each February 27. The day is used to raise awareness about impacts on the polar bear population as well as encourage conservation efforts.
Here at the Polar King and Polar King Mobile, we have always taken a special interest in polar bears. As we celebrate International Polar Bear Day, here are some fun facts about these majestic creatures.
