Polar Bear Dying From Global Warming

Sep 2, 2023 | Environmental, Nature, Videos

Polar bears are stunningly beautiful creatures, yet their future is in peril due to global warming. As temperatures rise and ice melts, polar bears are losing their habitat and are unable to find enough food to survive. This has resulted in a decline of around 40 percent in the population of polar bears across the Arctic.

The documentary “Polar Bear Dying” takes a look at this sad reality. It follows a family of polar bears in Svalbard, Norway, as they struggle to survive the harsh winter there. The film captures the devastating effects of global warming on these majestic animals and gives viewers an intimate look into the lives of these struggling creatures.

On top of melting sea ice, fertilizer runoff from agricultural land is causing algal blooms that contaminate the polar bear’s prey with toxic substances. These algae blooms also block sunlight which reduces photosynthesis, resulting in fewer plants in the environment for them to eat. Add in oil spills from ships and drilling which further harm their already fragile environment, and it’s easy to see why this species is under threat.

Climate change isn’t just impacting polar bears either; it’s affecting all Arctic wildlife and habitats too. For example, walruses are losing their resting places due to thinner ice and some species of whales have made drastic changes in their migration patterns due to changing ocean temperatures.

By watching “Polar Bear Dying” you can not only learn about the challenges faced by this amazing species but also understand why it’s so important that we take action now against climate change if we want these animals—and indeed all wildlife—to continue living on our planet. Without taking action now it could be just a matter of time before we lose polar bears forever—something none of us would want to witness or be responsible for. So take some time today to watch this important documentary and help make sure that our children can still marvel at these amazing creatures for generations to come!
