Bare Existence: Gripping New Film

For all of us at Polar Bears International, hope means rolling up our sleeves and getting to work. Global climate change is melting the sea ice polar bears depend on—so now, more than ever, polar bears need our attention and our action. Bare Existence, a documentary made possible by Canada Goose, takes a behind-the-scenes look at our efforts to conserve wild polar bears and the Arctic sea ice they call home.

This is Bare Existence.

Head to Canada Goose to watch the full documentary.

We are excited to celebrate Canada Goose’s recently released expansion of their Polar Bears International collection—all in signature PBI Blue. Now including spring styles, a portion of proceeds from the sale of each item directly supports our work.  Canada Goose has supported PBI for over a decade and raised over $3.5 million dollars to help fund our research, conservation, and outreach, including instrumental funding to support the construction of the Polar Bears International House, a state-of-the-art interpretive center in Churchill, Manitoba, Canada.
