After hearing so much about the plight of polar bears and the effects of global warming on their habitat, we started talking about it, and these sculptures were the result. Mom has a wonderful knack for making small figures in clay, and she sells her pottery scuptures in galleries all over Sedona, Arizona.
There's a program at the World Wildlife Fund, where you can adopt a polar bear. For a donation starting at $50, you can "adopt" a bear and get a little fun gift, too, like certificates and plush stuffed bears. It's a scary and sad thing to think that in my lifetime, polar bears can be brought to the brink of extinction. Bears are adapted to living on sea ice, and as their habitat shrinks, due to global warming, we'll be seeing less and less of these majestic and magical animals
She's working on some new bears that promise to be even more fun. I can't wait to see them.
