Apparently the first week of November was Polar Bear Week so here are a few shots from the polar bear files. Better late than never! All these images were captured at various times throughout this year at Brookfield Zoo except the last one which is an old favorite of mine, taken at Lincoln Park Zoo, and one that I drag out of mothballs every once in a while to give it an airing.
If we don’t do something about global warming pretty d….. quick, the only place you will be able to see polar bears will be in zoos like Brookfield. The conservation work they do will give bears like this a fighting chance but only if we all do our bit. Because of climate change, polar bears have been classified as a vulnerable species.
