We Care About the Polar Bear
Volunteering might be over for the summer, but that doesn”t mean you still can”t be involved! In case you haven”t heard, the Cincinnati Zoo has joined up with Polar Bear International (PBI) and has become an Artic Ambassado
r Center! What does that mean? Basically, polar bear scientists are researching ways to save the bear and finding ways to reduce greenhouse gas in our communities. It also allows our zoo to participate in different educational programs, such as “Project Polar Bear”. This contest includes teens from all over the U.S. and the goal is to see which team can find ways to reduce the most CO2 (carbon dioxide) in a period of 3 months. I decided to participate this fall and make a team. Me and my friend Morgan make up the team called “Impact”. Our project online casinos has three main parts-
- Recycling milk cartons in our high school
- Planting 110 Tulip trees
- Getting people to make a pledge
How can you support Morgan and I with our polar bear project? Stiamo parlando dei tavoli della Roulette , come quelli del Blackjack e per gli amanti dei giochi di carte non mancheranno tavoli da poker, da briscola ed ovviamente da scopa. It”s simple. Go to www.mycarbonpledge.com and pledge to turn your thermostat up 2 degrees in the summer and down 2 degrees in the winter! When you sign-up make your pledge with Impact. Part of the project also includes another blog I”m working on to let people know what Impact is doing. If you”re interested go to http://www.polarbearsinternational.org/programs/project-polar-bear/teams/impact to check out our page. Impact is not the only team trying to help the polar bears! Other Project Polar Bear teams are signed-up with the Cincinnati Zoo as well. If you want to know more about them and what the Cincinnati Zoo is doing to help polar bears go to http://www.cincinnatizoo.org/earth/CREW/polarbear.html#student.
