Melting Ice Caps
Polar bears and penguins face an uncertain future, and really are on thin ice.
Climate change is heating up the Arctic faster than anywhere else, and sea ice is shrinking 14 percent per decade. This forces polar bears to burn huge amounts of energy travelling long distances to get to any remaining ice. Meanwhile, the Antarctic is one of the world’s least disturbed places, but it’s rapidly becoming increasingly more vulnerable.
“Our world is under threat like never before and the trouble is we think we have time.” – The World Wildlife Fund
Our penguin and polar bear brooch is 3.5 cm (1.4”) wide and is attached with a metal clasp pin.
