Today, scientists have concluded that the threat to polar bears is ecological change in the Arctic from global warming. Polar bears depend on sea ice for hunting, breeding, and in some cases, denning. Summer ice loss in the Arctic now equals an area the size of Alaska, Texas, and the state of Washington combined.
The trend in sea ice losses is clear and underscores the need for action. That action must come not from those who live near the polar bear's home--but from you and me. THANK YOU for becoming part of the momentum to make a low-carbon lifestyle the norm, not the exception!
