Polar Bears International created the day to help denning moms and cubs as they hibernate in the winter. This is a venerable time for the bears and their cubs. The cubs are born during the wintertime in the dens.The cubs are very tiny and the polar bear families stay in the dens until the cubs have matured enough to venture outside later in the spring.
How to celebrate – Donate to the “moms and Cubs” challenge at polarbearsinternational.org. Visit the site for more info on activities and resources for the day, including a coll video of their latest den project.
