The Polar Bear Conservation Page was created to inform and raise awareness of the threats polar bears in the Arctic face as a result of hunting and climate change, and what can be done to help. The process of creating this site included these crucial methods:
Conducted research on hunting regulations to limit recreational hunting of polar bears in order to formulate new ideas on polar bear hunting.
Interviewed a Polar Bears International Arctic Ambassador and found out how polar bear research is conducted in the Arctic.
Examined a graph detailing the gradual and sudden changes in temperature in the Arctic tundra.
Wrote an extensive research paper on the effects of hunting and climate change on polar bear conservation.
Presented research via Powerpoint to a high school independent research class and an environmental science class in order to practice for a final presentation.
