Marie H: What can sending money possibly do to help the problem with polar bears?
There are these commercials all over TV, made by the organization WWF(world wildlife foundation) and they want us to send money to “help” these polar bears that are dying due to global warming. How can sending money possibly help with global warming?! Shouldn’t they be commercials for recycling or not driving a hummer or something that would really help? Aren’t we just paying for more useless commercials? How would we stop global warming by sending them money? They don’t elaborate on how we could help.

They are not going to tell you how they help because they are a scam.
Someone is getting rich and it is not the bears.
A complete scam! don’t waste your money. Global warming is a hoax as well.Answer by Todd
I agree, when I saw those commercials I thought the only thing money could instantly do was help is buy/make plastic glaciers so the polar bears wouldn’t drowned. It’s kind of ridiculous…Answer by Ben L
Obviously they’re going to do something productive with the money. Maybe it IS for running ad campaigns to recycle.
I mean, commercials take money. Lots of money. Any kind of advertising requires some funding. If they were to just show public service messages, like “ride your bike”, they’d have to get money from somewhere in order to pay the networks to let them run their commercial. And for charities like WWF, most of their funding comes from public donors. So occasionally they have to ask for money.Answer by Jimmbbo
“The latest government survey of polar bears roaming the vast Arctic expanses of northern Quebec, Labrador and southern Baffin Island show the population of polar bears has jumped to 2,100 animals from around 800 in the mid-1980s.
“As recently as three years ago, a less official count placed the number at 1,400.
“The Inuit have always insisted the bears’ demise was greatly exaggerated by scientists doing projections based on fly-over counts, but their input was usually dismissed as the ramblings of self-interested hunters.
“As Nunavut government biologist Mitch Taylor observed in a front-page story in the Nunatsiaq News last month, “the Inuit were right. There aren’t just a few more bears. There are a hell of a lot more bears.”Answer by Bad Moon Rising
It will help by being able to pay enough Inuit hunters to betray their own people and say that they have noticed a decline in the Polar Bear population and that the Government must stop global warming.
I think that the Inuit are too smart to actually let that happen, but you need money to try!Answer by DaveH
There is nutritional value in paper currency, but it’s quite limited.
I think polar bears prefer meat.Answer by andy
Actually all the WWF is doing is trying to get more money for their pet projects. The polar bears are doing better then ever or at least for the past century. Out of the 16 colonies the majority are either stable or growing. The WWF is just like the ASPCA commercials trying to put animals ahead of people. Also, the only way that the WWF could really help creatures is by buying up huge tracks of land that are the habitat of the creatures in question. This doesn’t work with the polar bear who already lives in more secluded spots with few human settlements around.Answer by TJ
It won’t help…….it’s just another scam! You can do your best for the environment, which we should all do, BUT in the end Mother Nature will continue with survival of the fittest…Darwin explained this very well.Answer by Bob
Most polar bears now have paypal accounts and get the money directly. They also receive generous payments from the WWF and Greenpeace for their appearances in commercials.
Mostly they spend the cash on sealskin shoes and fish, but that is only because there is no Wal-Mart in the Arctic.Answer by Frank
