Big 5s

Jennifer Morgan

Executive Director, Greenpeace International

“There are so many animals that I love but if I had to pick just one, I would choose the polar bear. They are among the most beautiful and exciting animals on Earth because they are fierce, smart and majestic. Their features stand out so remarkably against the Arctic’s landscape. They are like ying and yang: hugely powerful, while deeply affectionate, especially the mothers with their young.

Polar bears are highly vulnerable to climate change and its impacts. The disappearance of vast areas of sea ice across the Arctic, caused by global warming, makes life for them more difficult and in some cases means it’s impossible for them to hunt, reducing their chances of survival. Polar bears are at real risk of extinction. This brings even more urgency to my work. When I see them in vulnerable situations, my heart hurts.”
