Save the Arctic Floofs
Global polar bear numbers are projected to decline by 30% by 2050.
By 2040, only a fringe of ice will remain in polar bear habitats in the north of Canada and Greenland. The last area of ice will become crucial for polar bears and other life that depends on ice. Much of the region is facing significant ice loss in the coming decades - with serious consequences for polar bears.
The arctic fox, which is also included in the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, and already extinct in Finland, is also down to extremely low levels throughout Scandinavia. Thanks to a dramatic decrease in fur trades, its global population is not threatened but climate change will affect a huge area of its living space and likely be pushing population back to endangered levels.
Climate change, industrial impacts and unsustainable hunting are threats to arctic and aquatic mammals like seals, walruses, orcas, narwhals, beluga whales and many others. They all were threatened by commercial hunting, but today the biggest danger by far is climate change. Turns out, humans don’t even have to be close to animals to extinct entire populations.

Help us make the world a little bit less ugly!
Choose your good cause and we ensure that everything arrives where it can have the maximum effect. We collect all payments on a separate account and hand it over together with our own donation to selected oganisations. We visit all partners several times a year and personally ensure that the money is used for the respective purpose before we pay out the sum. We document these visits in our blog and inform about them in our magazin regularly as well.
Our payments are always earmarked! We DO NOT support the running costs of foundations or organizations!
We must fight against the spirit of unconscious cruelty ...
with which we treat the animals. Animals suffer as much as we do. True humanity does not allow us to impose such sufferings on them. It is our duty to make the whole world recognize it. Until we extend our circle of compassion to all living things, humanity will not find peace. —Albert Schweizer
