Climate change is impacting habitats and animals across the globe. When we use energy we create carbon dioxide, which when released into the atmosphere, causes changes in climate. Excess carbon creates an overall warming effect that is impacting wildlife.
Polar bears (Ursus maritimus) live on Arctic coasts including northern Alaska and Russia, historically hunting on ice masses which extend from the land. These Arctic regions are directly affected by climate change. The increase in temperature is causing the ice to melt and dramatically changing the landscape as the bodies of water that separate the land masses increase.
