The name Nanuq means polar bear in Inuktitut. The polar bear symbolizes endurance, strength, protection and peace. Unfortunately, the polar bears are struggling due to climate change. The sea ice is consistently melting earlier in the season each year and without it, the polar bears cannot hunt their main prey - seals. By reducing our energy consumption, we can reduce our impact on climate change and ensure the vitality of this magnificent bear.
