Shrinking polar ice caps and the warming climate are both snatching away the habitat of the bears from them.
Because of the early melting of ice and irregular seasons his hibernation process is being hampered with.
His preys like the ringed and bearded seals are also facing the same dangers as of their predator and hence the polar bears are also dying because of starvation. Days and days the bears spend in search of food either they end up finding a carcass of a Beluga whale, or die in the polar wilderness.
So Today Lets Pledge To Save Not Only The Bears but Life on Earth
You may feel that you're only one person and can't really make a difference but we should remember the fact that even oceans are made up of small droplets of water.
Evolution: boon or curse
What once was considered as a gift of nature in the form of evolution is now acting as a killer agent against the polar bears.
Yes, there was once a time when their thick fur and cot protected them from the harsh climate, but now it is limiting the capabilities of these poor animals. If the bears run too fast or engage into strenuous activities their body temperature shoots up and prevents them from further engaging into activities.
Now the ball is no more in the bear's court; it is up to us to save the bears and maintain the harmony in nature ‘coos we are the only species on planet earth to understand the meaning of‘global warming’
A WAY OUT?
HOW THEY CAN BE TRACKED?
Conservation requires tracking of Polar Bears. Scientists use radio collars to track the movements of polar bears. Once a polar bear is fitted with a radio collar, the collar sends signals to a receiving station via satellite. Scientists can enter the data into a computer program that plots the polar bear's path. Only female polar bears can be tracked using radio collars. Male polar bears have necks wider than their heads, and the collars simply fall off.
The movements of polar bears can also be studied by following their tracks in the snow, usually by aircraft. Other behaviors are recorded by observing polar bears directly, or finding evidence of polar bears, such as a partially eaten seal.
