Polar Bears

In the wild the POLAR BEAR's habitat and home range depends on two main factors: sea ice and seals. In smaller home ranges they overlap with other bears to catch their prey. As the Arctic and sea ice melt, human and polar bear interaction will rise, causing conflict. Polar bear attacks on humans are still very rare but there is evidence they are increasing, although in many cases the bears are simply curious, undernourished, frightened or provoked. 

POPULATION STATUS VULNERABLE: Polar bears are only found in the Arctic, where sea ice advances and retreats each season, forcing them to travel thousands of miles to find food. As this ice melts due to climate change, seals are becoming harder to hunt and polar bears have to travel further to catch their prey.
