The polar bear or the ice bear are the world’s largest land predators. They can be found in the Arctic, the U.S. (Alaska), Canada, Russia, Denmark (Greenland), and Norway.
These countries either banned hunting or made rules for how many polar bears could be hunted within its own boundaries. These rules help keep the polar bear populations stable. Today, 20,000 to 40,000 polar bears roam the Arctic.
This information helps people understand how endangered the polar bear is how would you feel if the human race was endangered.
There are three main dangers to the polar bear
1. Hunting is a big issue they kill the polar bears so they can make money while knowing that they have just taken an animals life and that gilt should stay with them forever.
2. Global warming is a huge danger to polar bears humans use to many cars buses and we have to many factory’s which make very hot smoke and that makes all the ice melts.
3. Habitat loss happens all the time and it’s becoming a regular thing for the polar bear but that doesn’t mean it’s a good thing it just means it’s happening more and they are getting use to losing family members.
Honestly what does the Polar Bear need more than anything else ……” Ice”!!! What can Defenders of Wildlife do about that?
Humans are the polar bears only predator. Baby polar bears often starve. In fact, 70 percent do not live to their third birthday. Sometimes seals are hard to find, especially in the summer when the ice has melted. All across the Arctic, man is moving in to mine oil and coal and there is less space for the polar bear to live. Oil spills can be very dangerous. A bear with oil on its coat cannot regulate its body temperature properly. If the bear eats the oil while grooming it could die.
Man made pollution is also a cause of death. At each stage of the food chain, pollutants get more concentrated. By the end when the polar bear eats the seal and it could be lethal.
