Product Description
Polar Bear Swimming Notecard
Polar bear swimming
Photograph by Steven Kazlowski

Despite its ample stature, the polar bear (Ursus maritimus, literally ?sea bear? in Latin) is built for swimming. Its narrow skull, long neck, and elongated body disguise a hefty layer of blubber, up to four inches thick, which both insulates and buoys. With head held high, the polar bear gracefully swims great distances (50–200 miles), reaching speeds of up to six miles per hour, along the coasts of the circumpolar Arctic Ocean. Below the water, the bear uses its back paws like rudders while moving its front paws in a dog-paddle motion.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this notecard supports the Sierra Club’s efforts to preserve and protect the planet. Printed in the United Sates with soy-based inks on recycled paper.
