Thirty-nine: ice, originally uploaded by meganknight.
It’s green week on campus, and one of the activities/exhibits is an ice sculpture of a polar bear, with the slogan “think before we sink” on its pedestal. I saw them carving it yesterday, and took a picture, but I decided to come back today and photograph it when it had melted a bit. It’s almost 10 degrees today, so it should have melted. Unfortunately, someone apparently came and kicked it apart during the day, because when I got there this afternoon it was strewn in pieces across the lawn.
I wondered whether someone might have destroyed it to make a point, but it appears it was just wanton vandalism.
This is part of the sculpture, and its base, but you wouldn’t know it.

That wanton vandalism symbolizes why the polar bears are at risk of extinction.
