Polar Bears

The International Union for Conservation of Nature’s (IUCN) Species Survival Commission

In light of the changing political climate and President Donald Trump withdrawing the US from the Paris Agreement we have a crucial role to play in tackling climate change. We formed a close partnership with the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s (IUCN) Species Survival Commission in order to protect wildlife from climate change and ensure we’re making a difference to conservation on a global scale.

The Climate Change Summit in Paris discussed the clear and urgent threat to many thousands of species as weather systems and habitats change. In response to the US’ withdrawal from the Paris Agreement, the ICUN’s Director General commented:

“The Paris Agreement, in our view, is a historic treaty and represents the world’s best hope in tackling the challenge of climate change”Inger Andersen, IUCN Director General

In support of IUCN, we stay firmly committed to our work of combatting this issue and will continue to support their efforts in monitoring animal and habitat biodiversity and the threats they face due it climate change. As the only Park in England that is home to four polar bears, we ask you to help us tackle the problem.

Shout out about the importance of combatting climate change and support our efforts in ensuring the Polar Bears remain in the Arctic.
