Be A Polar Bear Explorer…

Plymouth is a city full of many wonders; and now we can add 20 beautiful Polar Bear Cubs to the list!

From November 25th through until March 3rd, 20 Polar Bear cubs will be let loose across Plymouth’s Waterfront. The cubs will be hiding in Sutton Harbour, The Barbican, Hoe, Millbay and Royal William Yard and they NEED our help!

As Britain’s Ocean City, the Polar Bear Cubs have chosen us to bring an important message to Plymouth this winter. Each cub will have a Bear Fact with them, telling us about the Arctic and the oceans, how plastic is affecting their home and how we can all help.

So, What Is It All About..?

Your task, should you choose to accept it,  is to become a Polar Bear Explorer and find each of the Polar Bear cubs with their Bear Facts!

You can download the Polar Bear Explorer brochure here and using the Explorer form on page 11, you can write down the key word from each of the cubs’ Bear Facts.

WWF, Greenpeace and the National Marine Aquarium have each helped to inform the Bear Facts, so they are both interesting and factual. For a little extra help, you can also download the map here.

Once you’ve found all 20, complete the Explorer form. Just add your details and make your pledge! Your pledge is  to help Polar Bears by reducing single-use plastics at home, at school and in the workplace.

Deliver your Explorer form to one of the Arctic Post Boxes at either the National Marine Aquarium, the Barbican Tourist Information Centre or Bistrot Pierre.

You can also mail it to: Polar Bear Explorer, Plymouth Waterfront Partnership, Ballard House, West Hoe, Plymouth PL1 3BJ or enter online here.
