Today is Giant Panda Day! Panda Day is dedicated to spreading awareness about those adorable bears of nature, spreading the word that deforestation is leading to the destruction of their habitats. Giant Pandas are currently classified as vulnerable animals. Fun fact: The eyespots of a giant panda cub are initially in the shape of a circle. As the cub grows, the circles become shaped like a teardrop.⠀
Approximately 5 millions plastic straws are used every day in the United State alone. That’s 175 billions a year littering to the landfill, waterways and ocean. Consume your drink without a straw or start using a reusable straw now. ⠀

February 27 is International Polar Bear Day. Polar bears are marine mammals, they spend much of their time on Arctic sea ice. The largest threat to polar bears is the decrease in sea ice due to climate change and global warming. Climate change is causing sea ice to melt much earlier in the year. Sea ice is crucial for polar bears survival. Without sea ice, Polar bear cannot catch seals, their main prey. Using less energy produced by carbon based fuel reduces our carbon emissions and can slow global warming. We all can play a part in stopping global warming and we must. ⠀
