Polar Bears Alive is a non-profit organization dedicated to the worldwide protection of the polar bear and its arctic habitat.
Polar Bears Alive was founded in 1992 to serve as a calm voice on behalf of Ursus maritimus. It was established by the late Dan Guravich, an award-winning photographer who is internationally known for his work with polar bears. After years of observing and photographing these intelligent animals, Guravich became increasingly concerned about their welfare.
Guravich served as the first president of Polar Bears Alive. He resigned in 1995 due to health reasons but remained active as Chairman of the Board until his death in 1997. PBA's current president is attorney Robert J. Wilson, a conservationist who has long been involved with issues concerning marine mammals.
In order to ensure that all donations go to support the goals of Polar Bears Alive, all members of the board, including the president, serve without pay.
