ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) — Como Zoo’s two polar bears, Buzz and Neil, are going global this Earth Day on a live broadcast around the world, and you can check it out.

The bears will take part in what could be called a worldwide play date. It’s available through the Tundra Connections Hangout and hosted by Polar Bear International. B.J. Kirschhoffer with Polar Bears International said it’s a good opportunity for people of all ages to look live at the animals and how they interact with each other.

This Earth Day, the polar bear’s biggest threat is climate change. Kirschhoffer said it’s a unique species that we can help protect by making small changes in our lives.
