Geoff York has worked for many years in the Arctic, most recently as a biologist and program manager for the US Geological Survey's Polar Bear Project. For Geoff, field work consists of monitoring polar bears' health and tagging and tracking their movements across sea ice.
"Species everywhere are feeling the heat, but none more extreme than polar bears and other Arctic species." - Geoff York, WWF's polar bear expert, speaking about the effects of the melting Arctic sea ice
After handling hundreds of bears in the wild, Geoff knows firsthand the challenges that polar bears face. You can help Geoff protect the polar bears by continuing to support the Arctic Home campaign. Keep sharing the video (http://www.causes.com/causes/798741-arctic-home/actions/1695397?open_inviter=true) about the effort that WWF and Coca-Cola are making to create a place where polar bears and local communities can thrive.
For those of you who love polar bears as much as Geoff does, you can make a donation on ArcticHome.com or text BEAR to 357357 (a $5 donation) and Coca-Cola will match donations made by February 15, 2013, up to $1,000,000*.
