The Polar Bear on Thin Ice - Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History
Add to Calendar 28-02-2013 28-02-2013 15 The Polar Bear on Thin Ice The snow-white, powerful and dangerous polar bear is the very symbol of the Arctic. With its circumpolar range, Nanook has been hunted and revered by aboriginal people for as long as they have shared this icy habitat. Europeans first encountered these bears when they ventured northward in search of the elusive Northwest and Northeast Passages and found their paths blocked by impenetrable rafts of ice—the very ice that polar bears inhabit so comfortably. Today, polar bears are part of our culture: they are featured in zoos and circuses, and appear in advertising, feature films and innumerable nature programs. Yet far from the Arctic greenhouse gases spewed into the atmosphere are warming the land and the oceans, and warming oceans mean melting ice. Celebrated author, painter and conservationist Richard Ellis will discuss why its disappearance spells doom for the bears. Book signing to follow. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=127487 Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History true DD/MM/YYYY
