Giants of the Arctic

Canada's Arctic supports our planet's largest remaining pristine ecosystems. It's home not only to polar bears, but also to species such as caribou, narwhal and beluga whales, arctic char, seabirds, seals, and musk oxen.

But this magnificent wilderness is now threatened by major pressures: climate change, toxic pollution, mining, and oil and gas development.

Ice Bear. Giant of the Arctic. To the Inuit, Nanuk. By whatever name, the polar bear is a symbol of the Arctic world.

Help safeguard the polar bear's Arctic home. Adopt a polar bear for yourself or someone you love.
