In honor of Polar Bear Week and International Polar Bear Day, WWF is hosting a live Google Hangout on Wednesday with two Canadian polar bear experts!

When: Wednesday, Feb 26
Time: 2:30 pm – 3:15 pm EST, 12:30 pm – 1:15 pm MST
Where to sign up: https://plus.google.com/events/c4h4mlne96khglnf1qcr2tikgqc

Join guests Dr. Pete Ewins, a Senior Arctic Species Officer at WWF, and Dr. Stephen Petersen, Head of Conservation and Research for the International Polar Bear Conservation Centre at Winnipeg’s Assiniboine Park Zoo.

These two know polar bears like no one else!  They’ll be sharing stories from the field and there will be a chance for viewers to pick their brains about the King of the Arctic.

If you have a question in mind, send it to live@wwfcanada.org.  Dr. Ewins and Dr. Peterson will try to get to as many questions as possible.

Hope to see you there!
