“We have seen for ourselves the ominous link between the survival of polar bears as a species and our own. That’s why our estate plans include a bequest to Polar Bears International. We believe that preserving polar bears is more than about saving an especially impressive species. It’s also a critical step toward preserving the planet for generations to come.”

“How can we imagine a world without polar bears for our children and our grandchildren. I can’t fathom that. I support Polar Bears International because it is the only organization solely focused on the conservation of polar bears. It is also of a size that a donor can make a difference. I feel like I make a difference.”
