Where’s the Ice?
Docent, Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium, Pittsburgh, PA
The poster focuses on the speed that the Arctic Ice Caps are melting. Climate change has brought a “new normal” to the Arctic. Ice is not forming until November and not starting to melt until June; however, Polar Bears den in October and re-emerge with cubs in April needing to hunt. What can we do? The poster and its accompanying table display generate hands-on as well take-home-and-think educational ideas to spur the general public to think about the power and responsibility they have to make changes (even small ones) in their own daily lives.
