Polar Bears are the largest bears in the world and even though they are called 'Polar' they only live at the North Pole in the Arctic. In fact, their name really means 'sea bear' as they live in the sea. They are the only bear to live at sea, not on land, which is odd as it's how we think of fish rather than bears - living in the sea. Guess what - with the seas warming up, the ice is melting and Polar bears are spending more and more time on land. As their Arctic habitat recedes by 13% a decade, so their ability to survive diminishes and they are now endangered as a species.
There are only 26,500 Polar Bears left! Our white necklace with gold bands is the Polar Bear. Oh, by the way, Polar Bears have blue tongues!
