International Polar Bear Day (or IPBD) takes place on February 27th. This is a great chance to help save the already potentially endangered polar bears. International means "worldwide". This means that anyone can celebrate IPBD! Follow these --- easy steps and you too can have an outstanding international polar bear day!


  1. Learn about polar bears. There are many facts and not a few misconceptions about polar bears, such as: they do not cover their nose with their paw(s).
  2. Go see the polar bears. Go to a zoo and make sure they are being treated properly and that their climate suits them.
  3. Participate in the Save Our Sea Ice (SOS) campaign. This campaign focuses on reducing global warming with a series of events. These events include International Polar Bear Day, which is traditionally celebrated with the launch event, the Thermostat Challenge.
  4. Take the Thermostat Challenge. Install a programmable thermostat and lowering or raising the temperature a few degrees, depending on where you live (if you live in a hot region, find other ways to cool down, etc.).
  5. Take the other challenges and events. This include Earth Hour (March 23, switch off the lights for one hour),Earth Day (April 22, reduce, reuse, and recycle,etc.), Endangered Species Day (March 17,reduce greenhouse gas emissions), World Oceans Day (June 8, change your shopping habits to lower amount of litter in oceans),and Arctic Sea Ice Day (July 13, save the sea ice). These events in turn have more events in honor of them.
  6. Go outside and pretend to be a polar bear... that can walk upright, thinks like a human, and has no conscious awareness of being a polar bear. While outside, attempt to make a snowman, or woman, or child, or dog, we don't discriminate. If the snow proves to be too powdery, just make snow angels, or non-denominational snow shapes.
  7. Solve a problem! I mean, ideally global warming because hey, polar bears are dying every day because you leave your fridge open for too long and run your thermostat two degrees too hot. But you could also figure out who drank the last of the milk. That totally matters too.
  8. Bite someone and immediately apologize. That's the polar bear way.
  9. Learn a magic trick... or 6! No wait, 7. Definitely 7. Make sure they're not too impressive or else people will think you're that weird guy who just sits in his basement and learns magic tricks. Polar bears don't respect that.
  10. Watch "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians" for the best depiction of a polar bear in costume. Ever.
  11. It is a little known fact that polar bears speak in exclusively German accents, but in perfect English. Take the time to learn a German accent to respect polar bear culture
  12. Engage in any other activity inspired by the Ogi stickers found on Facebook messenger. Cheers, Ogi!


  • Make polar bear cup cakes in honour of the occasion.
  • Eat chocolate cake
  • Take an elastic, cut it, then take a milk or bread tab, run it through the tab. Then bunch some of the elastic up in your hand, stretch the remaining elastic out so it looks like the original length. BUT THEN gradually release the elastic from your hand. The tab will look like it's FREAKIN' climbing up the elastic band. BOOM. Wizardry.


  • Polar bears kill for fun. Don't visit them in their natural habitat. Well you could, but prepare to be eaten.
