Bare All For Polar Bears is Back for The Sixth Year In A Row on Saturday 11th July 2020 at Yorkshire Wildlife Park! Sign up today.
Listed as a vulnerable species on the IUCN Red List, the polar bear has been affected by sea ice losses in the Arctic from global warming which have caused a loss of habitat and prey. In summer 2012, sea ice losses in the Arctic were larger than the size of the United States. Biologists estimate that there are 20,000 – 25,000 polar bears. About 60% of these live in Canada and they are also found in the U.S. (Alaska), Russia, Greenland and in Norway.
YWP will be working with the conservation organisation Polar Bears International to raise funds and support research and work with polar bears in the wild so this is where we need your help, we are looking for willing participants to Bare all on this three quarter mile naked dash around Yorkshire Wildlife Park.
