International Polar Bear Day is celebrated annually on 27 February and was initially organized by non-profit charity, Polar Bears International, a conservation organization for polar bears that was founded in 1994.

The day is celebrated and promoted now to raise awareness of the impact that environmental causes such as global warming are having on Polar Bear habitats, and reduced sea ice limiting polar bear populations.
