Arturo lives in the blistering sun of Argentina. A naturally Arctic animal spends his days living in 104 degrees Fahrenheit (40 degrees Celsius) of nothing but heat. 

If this upsets you as much as it upsets me, please consider signing the following petitions:

Please allow Arturo to have a better life in the Assiniboine Park Zoo in Canada

Quickly issue a special import permit to Canada for Arturo the Polar bear.

Free Arturo, Argentina’s only polar bear, from living hell!!!

FREE ARTURO: The Polar Bear In Despair

If you know of any more petitions I can add, please let me know and I’ll add them right away. 

Let’s rescue this poor little guy together!

People find themselves surrounded by hideous poverty, by hideous ugliness, by hideous starvation. It is inevitable that they should be strongly moved by all this. Accordingly, with admirable, though misdirected intentions, they very seriously and very sentimentally set themselves to the task of remedying the evils that they see. But their remedies do not cure the disease, they merely prolong it. Indeed, the remedies are part of the disease.
