POLAR BEAR Wildlife In Need Silver Coin 1$ Tuvalu 2012

POLAR BEAR Wildlife In Need

THIRD COIN IN SERIES AFTER "GIANT PANDA" AND "ORANGUTAN"

The "Wildlife in Need" series is dedicated to five rare and endangered wild animals, this beautiful Wildlife in Need series showcases these amazing creatures in need of our care.  They are decreasing in numbers quickly due to climatic changes, pollution and human hunting.

The coin’s reverse depicts two adult Polar Bears and a cub, in colour, against an Arctic landscape. The lower reverse comprises a struck design showing a pair of supporting hands, and the inscription WILDLIFE IN NEED – POLAR BEAR. The coin’s obverse depicts the Rank Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the 2012 year-date.

BACKGROUND AND HISTORY

POLAR BEAR
The 3rd release in the Wildlife in Need series is the Polar Bear. The Polar Bear is easily recognised by its distinctive shape, from its round posterior to its pointed black nose.
Although the bear’s fur looks white, each hair shaft is actually pigment-free and transparent with a hollow core that scatters and reflects visible light, much like what happens with ice and snow. The main threat to the Polar Bear is the loss of habitat caused by ice loss as a result of climate change. As the Arctic continues to warm, two-thirds of the world’s Polar Bears could disappear by mid-century. Other threats include pollution, poaching, industrial developments and unregulated hunting.
In May 2008, the United States Department of the Interior listed the Polar Bear as a Threatened Species under the Endangered Species Act, while Canada and Russia list the Polar Bear as a Species of Concern.

  • Giant Panda
