Polar Bear Fund

The Polar Bear Fund, held at The Winnipeg Foundation, supports innovative, non-invasive polar bear research and polar bear projects including ideas and initiatives that honour polar bears and their place in the Arctic. The Polar Bear Fund was created by Kal Barteski. Return to polarbearfund.ca
