Please help the polar bears

Help the Polar Bears

by Stephanie Taylor and Zavi Kaul

Help the polar bears! Smart scientists say that in 20 years they'll be extinct!

Let me tell you the situation. Polar bears swim sixty miles out to sea thinking they'll find an iceberg to rest on. But when they don't find one, they can't swim sixty miles back to land, so they drown.

Using fossil fuels causes pollution and leads to global warming which melts the icebergs. So while you are driving your car and using lights, the polar bears are swimming out to sea trying to find an iceberg to rest on, and when they don't find one, they drown! They'll be gone in 20 years!

So when you leave the room, turn off the lights and stop using the computers and TV so much and maybe, JUST MAYBE, we can save the polar bears together.

The above article and illustration were created by two third grade students in my school newspaper class and published in the Fall 2007 issue of the Duniway Dragonian. I am posting it here in honor of Earth Day.

Wow! What bright students you have. :) We're lucky if our future generation all turn out to be as caring and aware as these students. Yay!
