A new snapshot feature at the Explore.org site will allow fans to become citizen scientists by taking pictures of polar bears and recording live video footage to share with researchers and assist in learning more about the plight of the polar bears.
Explore.org and Polar Bears International will also host live chats with educators and experts live from the banks of Hudson’s Bay.
Charlie Annenberg, founder of Explore.org, said people will learn a great deal about the threats faced by polar bears by watching them in their natural setting and hearing what experts have to say about challenges they face to survive.
“If you watch them and participate in our live talks and snapshot features, I promise you will develop an emotional connection with them that will change your life forever,” Annenberg said in a statement. “Being an environmental steward begins with falling in love with the world again.”
In partnership, Explore.org and Polar Bears International started Polar Bear Week five years ago as a way to encourage people everywhere to learn about the plight of the polar bears
