It’s bear o’clock at Bali, as Polar Bears shout – Save The Humans Too

Polar Bear protesting for humans affected by Climate Change. Photos NG Swan TiIt was very hot and sunny in Bali this morning, so spare a thought for Oxfam’s Polar Bears, who made a special visit to the United Nations Climate Change Conference. The bears, who aren’t used to such hot weather, made big splash, when they showed their support for people who are also feeling the impact of Climate Change.

Whether it was holding placards, shouting “Save the humans too,” riding a tandem bike, or even taking off their heads and speaking to press! The bears got their message out loud and clear, to a waiting throng of media and conference delegates.

The bears played up to the cameras but they wanted to highlight a very serious situation. They wanted to let people know that, it isn’t only animals who are suffering from climate change. Many people from developing countries or poor communities also have to cope with changes in climate that impact their lands, livelihoods and lives.

Watch the video or take a look at the photos, to see what the bears got up to and join them by taking action to Fight Climate Poverty. The team here in Bali, would like to send a very big thank you to our fantastic volunteers, who brought the Polar Bears to life in very hot weather.
