Arturo is kept in a 104º enclosure. We want to help him, other suffering polar bears and their habitats around the world.

I've added a third target of $5000. It's a huge amount of money so lets see how it goes...

The second goal of $2000 has been hit. Incredible! Thank you so much!

The first goal of $1000 has been hit. Amazing!

This is Arturo, a polar bear living in South America who has been called the ‘world’s saddest animal’.

He sits in a concrete enclosure at Mendoza Zoo in Argentina in temperatures of up to 40C (104F) and is said to have been depressed since his long-term friend Pelusa died two years ago.

It is claimed the 29-year-old’s lonely life is causing him to display abnormal behaviour, including tilting his head and showing his teeth while pacing back and forth and rocking from side to side.

I hope this donation drive will help bring more attention to the issues facing polar bears both in the wild and in substandard captive conditions.
