Around 3,000 environmentally conscious, caring people marched through the streets of central London as a half protest, half performance demonstration.
They were coming out against oil companies in the Arctic and they were led by a giant mechanical polar bear!!
The giant beast was the size of a double decker bus and required 15 puppeteers and 20 volunteers to walk it down Lambeth Palace Road towards Shell headquarters.
The giant bear led protesters on a call to ban oil and gas drilling in the Arctic as this would affect the habitat of polar bears and could affect the entire environment!
We're pretty sure if you want to send a message and get noticed, a giant, 3-ton bear is certainly a good way to do it! Ha!
Hopefully the gas companies got the message: "Stop messing up the Arctic or we'll use our giant bear to eat your office buildings!"
Or something along those lines. LOLz!

Whoa!! Look out behind you Katie!! There's a giant… stuffed.. bear…
Oh. Guess that's not a live polar bear… LOLz!
Katie Couric recently tweeted a terrifying pic (above) and wrote:
"Help!!!! @Hotelranga #Iceland"
That is seriously one GIGANTIC polar bear! We guess she met it while staying at Hotel Ranga in Iceland.
Sounds like a beautiful spot for a vacation… minus the deadly wildlife, of course.
Can you imagine if that thing was real and right behind her??
We'd die of fear before the bear ever got the chance to eat our face off.
Props to Katie for being brave enough to even approach the giant stuffed bear! But don't scare us like that again, Katie!

Justin Bieber looooooves animals!
We know this because it seems like every week he's got a new pet.
Some animals don't make the best pets…but they're still super cute, so thank goodness for zoos!
Justin recently visited a zoo, snapped the pic (above) and wrote:
The cruise ship M/S Expedition was passing through the Norwegian islands of Svalbard, halfway between Norway and the North Pole.
While floating through the ice and snow, a polar bear cub walked right up to the huge ship!
The area is populated with about 3,000 polar bears so it wasn't the rarest thing to see the little guy.
But the tourists on the ship sure were surprised when the bear walked right up to the ship, sniffed and then tried to push it!!
We guess that ship moved in on his territory and he was not too happy about it! LOLz!
He sure is a curious little guy!!
Check out the video (above) to see the cutie bear investigating a giant cruise ship.
In Australia, at Sea World's Polar Bear Shores, a new addition has people awwing their faces off!
Polar Bear Shores is one of the most technologically advanced Polar Bear exhibits in the whole world!
We couldn't think of a more perfect place for a little bundle of fuzzy cuteness to be born!
Australia's first Polar Bear cub in nearly 30 years was recently born and is finally starting to growl and open its eyes.
OMG! The little bear is so stinkin' CUTE!!
The little baby is only a month old but has already doubled in weight and is growing fast.
Check out the video (above) to see the little bear while it's still just a cutie fuzz ball!
We are shaking!
With amazing feelings!
Because we just bore witness to one of the greatest fights ever. The Thrilla In Alaska!
The Alaska Zoo to be exact.

Meryl Streep is just so dang ahmayzing.
We could listen to her read the phonebook.
So imagine how great it will be to hear the three-time Oscar winner narrate To The Arctic, a film that follows a cute polar bear family!
It's all about a polar bear mama and her two cubs as they just try and live their lives in their changing environment.
With global warming, changing landscapes and other, more dangerous polar bears, this family has a lot to overcome to relocated to a safer habitat.
The movie came out last April and is coming out on DVD and Blu Ray today!
Check out the video (above) for a closer look at the movie.
