Even polar bears could do with Green Energy

Have you spotted the amazing news about a polar bear which swam continuously for nine days? The scientists monitoring the movements of this particular bear are saying that the bear had to swim such a vast distance in search of food. With the ice cap melting, "land" was much further away than in the past. The poor animal swam 687 kilometres! And, in ice-cold water.

Not all of us may have spotted this particular piece of news, but we all have seen many different proposals for the production of energy with greener means from solar panels in homes to wind turbines in commercial production. The Whzan team's home county has taken things even further: if you own a hybrid-fuel car, you do not need to pay parking fees. Not a bad deal - particularly as the Whzan team does not need to travel far and fast on its home island.

What else could we do to help the animals of the Artic?
