On the 27th of March there was the International Polar Bear Day organized by Polar Bears International to raise awareness about the impact of global warming and reduced sea ice on polar bear populations. The day encourages people to find ways to reduce their carbon output, such as by turning down their thermostat or driving less. The day has also been used to encourage the installation of energy efficient insulation in houses.

Der 27.Februar war der  internationale Polar Eisbärentag. Aus diesem Anlass habe ich diese Ölbild gemalt. Der Polar Bär sieht in seiner angestammten Umgebung majestätisch aus. Weil die steigenden Temperaturen immer mehr arktisches Eis zum Schmelzen bringen, schrumpft der Lebensraum der Eisbären dramatisch. Erwärmt der Mensch die Erde wie bisher, werden die Eisbären zu den ersten Arten gehören, die dem Treibhauseffekt zum Opfer fallen.
