Pledge your love to the polar bears and win

The Singapore Zoo is asking you to pledge your love to the lovely polar bears. Just tell them why you love the polar bears and want them to live and you stand to win limited edition National Geographic Wild journals. From Singapore Zoo:
While average worldwide temperatures have risen 0.6 degree Celsius (one degree Fahrenheit) over the past century, the colder regions like the Arctic have warmed up to a far greater extent.

The Arctic is home to arctic animals like whales, walruses, seals, music oxen and polar bears. And these animals are in direct danger due to the melting of ice throughout the Arctic. The melting of ice will particularly impact polar bears and ringed seals as they spend substantial time living and feeding on the ice.

The melting ice raises the sea level of the oceans. Every inch 2.5 centimetres (one inch) of sea-level rise could result in 2.4 metres (eight feet) of horizontal retreat of sandy beach shorelines due to erosion.

Put yourself in the polar bears' paws now. Save them before they disappear from the Arctic.
And not forgetting, Happy Birthday to 16 year old Inuka!

(Thanks Myra Leong)
