Polar Bears are officially on the global list of animals to be protected. As global warming continues, their natural habitats are threatened as global sea ice melts and their ability to survive is threatened. If nothing is done, the great white bears will face extinction.

Thankfully an initiative by the The Interior Department, who declared the animals a threatened species today, will see these majestic northern mammals consciously protected.
