The videos and images of this polar bear is weighing on our mind. If you've seen the full video, you'll have seen the way the polar bear gets up, walks, carries itself with its shrunken body. There are no words to describe the impact.
This is by no means the only way, but the following is important to highlight:
one of the ways we can help is by reducing our impact more by going vegan, responsibly - not just vegetarian as Paul Nicklen says.
Yes, vegetarianism is a HUGE step in the right direction and we wouldn't want to discredit that at all. However, the dairy industry and meat industry go hand in hand when talking about climate impact - and this is something we can act upon and change - through education, activism and responsible veganism, and changing the way we consume.
Once again, it's not just responsible veganism - but taking that step will make a huge difference in changing the situation.

“This is what a starving—not old—polar bear looks like. The muscles atrophy. They have no energy. It’s a slow, painful death. When scientists say polar bears will be extinct in the next 100 years, I think of 25,000 bears dying like this. There is no band aid solution. The simple truth is this—if the Earth continues to warm, we will lose species. We must reduce our carbon footprint, go vegetarian, stop cutting down our forests, and begin putting the Earth—our home—first.” - @paulnicklen
