Polar Bears Dealing With Climate Change

Satisfactory Essays

How are polar bears dealing with climate change? Let me tell you. Polar Bears food is diminishing, fast. According to National Geographic, the population of polar bears has dropped 40 percent from 2001-2010. Here are strategies that polar bears have adapted too.

Putting Leftovers on Ice
Polar bears have been trapping food and eating it later, which is unusual for them. However, because food keeps declining, this won’t last long.
Surf and Turf on the Menu
Polar bears rely on snow geese now as backup food. Their eggs are equivalent to eating one stick of butter. Additionally, seaweed, fish and whale carcasses are on the menu, but unfortunately that is not enough for them. This “diet” is not enough for polar bears to survive as a whole.
