Photo: Climate Change Impact On Wildlife Polar Bears

Global warming and climate change both have a direct impact on wildlife especially species who dwell in the arctic regions such as the great Polar Bear.

Changes to world climate through global warming not only delays the build up of much needed ice in Hudson Bay, it also leaves the coastal habitat of many species of wildlife, including the polar bear, barren.

The warmer temperatures are slowly encroaching further into periods that have traditionally been colder. This in turn leaves a shorter period of time where areas are blanketed in snow and ice, which are vital for the survival of some wildlife.

A polar bear for instance can overheat very easily in warm weather as they have a layer of blubber around 10cm thick. So until the icy conditions of winter arrive they generally rest and preserve their energy until the ice has built up in the bays and they are able to access their prey.

For several years now, biologists have been painting a grim picture for wildlife as a result of the impact of climate change and global warming. ... continue below the picture...
