MIAMI (AP) - April 30, 2012 (WPVI) -- A polar bear dance party in Miami is aimed at raising awareness about the need to protect the Arctic Ocean.
The dancers are expected to dress as polar bears Saturday afternoon. The dance party will raise awareness of plans to start drilling this summer in the Arctic's Beaufort and Chukchi seas, both home to polar bears.
The dance is being held by the Sierra Club, Alaska Wilderness League, Center for Biological Diversity, Oceana, Endangered Species Coalition, and Natural Resources Defense Council.
