      The polar bear is one of those animals you couldn’t imagine disappearing and yet it is listed as an endangered species. I think it is a shame but it is up to us all to make a concerted effort: take the car less, spare our water usage, reduce our energy consumption (turn off those lights) . These were things I grew up doing and so it comes naturally to me, not so much my kids. I’m always turning off the tap when they’re brushing their teeth!
