Are Arctic Polar Bears Close to Extinction?

The Kyoto Protocol Video Video

They’re adorable, cuddly and absolutely vulnerable. Polar bears capture the admiration as well as attention of people the globe over for their fluffy bright coats as well as huggable size. They amass recognition from pet enthusiasts for their hunting skill and survival tactics in one of the harshest atmospheres on Planet. Yet regardless of their mind-boggling recognition these giants are actually in danger of being actually wiped off Planet completely.

Ice melting really should be actually a primary focus of conservation energies for the polar bear as this is impacting the polar bear the most. Polar bears rely on substantial stops of drifting ice to perform their routine activities linked to staying alive. Polar bears prey on fat-laden seals from these blocks of ice, they mate, as well as some also deliver their cubs on them. The issue by having the ice melting is actually that lots of polar bears have actually gone hungry since there is actually not adequate ice for them to hunt their prey. This influences their capability to reproduce as well as carry their cubs to term that directly impacts population quantities. Even, when ice is actually also a long way from land, polar bears will wipe out trying to swim a long way distances to find them. All of these elements have actually made the polar bear more land bound.

When polar bears are actually on land they are more most likely to come face-to-face by having a predator, people. In some cases folks hunt polar bears as trophies as well as other people kill polar bears while defending themselves. Folks additional influence polar bears when companies construct facilities in their natural environment, thereby adjusting it irrevocably.

Intervention in the form of authorities authorities to reduce human influence has been highlighted as a main concern in America as well as additional countries. In addition, individual companies and interest collections continue to lobby as well as function by having the government to defend this worthwhile pet in its natural habitat. Apart from government intercession, further analysis concerning international warming is essential so that the temperature change may be put a stop to or altered. There are actually agencies that are actually raising cash for this surprisingly reason. One more method communities are actually helping the polar bear is to make use of trained bear patrol agents to keep the land bound polar bears from folks as well as to make sure that the bears are not competing likewise firmly with the individuals for the food resources on land.

Knowledge is power. Come to be additional informed concerning this necessary theme by paying a visit to Polar Bears at World Wild Life.

    a clever title for a polar bear paper? does anyone have a cute and clever title idea for a polar bear project i’m doing? all i can think of is “polar bears: on a path to extinction” but thats not cute or clever. maybe something to do with “paws” as “pause” or something idk help please! :)

  2. Larry says:

    Why don’t you go with something scientific and not cartoony?

  3. William S says:

    Well I know one fact of mother polar bears is that they can distribute their body weight evenly when walking on ice. However if the ice is too thin they can end up in some serious trouble, especially if they get caught underneath. On that note maybe your title could be something like “Polar Bears: walking on thin ice”

  5. Smurph says:

    What Species of animal do you think will be the next to be extinct?Or close to extinction? I think the Polar bear will be the next due to Global warming and the Ice melting…

  6. birdgirl says:

    Mountain Gorilla, African Elephant, Siberian Tiger, several bird species in Hawaii.

  7. Stephanie W says:

    suprisingly, about a species goes extinct about every 6 hours because of all the habitat loss

  8. systemF says:

    In America, white people seem to be on a significant population decline. I believe they now make up only about 66% of the population in the U.S.

  9. alias89 says:

    Polar bears maybe but I am betting on humans as the next species to go don’t ya think we are the only one killing ourselves not for survival but for greed.

  10. nomad says:

    Thousands of species become extinct every year.

  11. Rita says:

    which animals are near extinction? please type as many and if you know any good websites that would be great :D i know that polar bears e.t.c are nearing extinction but any unusual ones? BEST ANSWER FOR FIRST ANSWER?? YES THANK YOU BT NAME ME SOME!! :)

  12. Lollygag says:

    Far too many to list, check out http://www.iucnredlist.org/ they have photo galleries of some of the most endangered animals plus a bunch of other info on endangered animals.

  13. donquixotereturns says:

    There are loads and loads of animals nearing extinction or endangered. “With nearly a quarter of all mammal species and a third of amphibians threatened with extinction” this was from the World Wildlife Fund.

  14. Bird Nerd says:

    About 1/3 of the world’s amphibian species are endangered due to the chytrid fungus and pollution.

  15. George says:

    Hirola antelope (also called the four-eyed antelope due to its large preorbital glands) which is now entirely restricted to north-western Kenya. There are only about 1500 left. The vaquita is a tiny porpoise which lives in the Gulf of Mexico and there are no more than about 600 left, due to entanglement in fishing nets. The South China Tiger is thought to number no more than about 30. The Yangtze River Dolphin is possibly extinct, with few reliable sightings in the past ten years. The Sumatran Rhinoceros numbers few more than 60. There are only about 200 Siamese Crocodiles left in the wild. The Iberian Lynx is Europe’s most endangered mammal.

  16. Don S says:

    My subject matter pertains to the extinction of the species. How many species of animals throughout the earth? become extinct say every day, month or year? How come we only hear of the polar bear, the whales, the panda bear, gorillas, elephants, etc. all generally zoo animals and nothing of other species? For example, the lowly skunk gets run over by cars almost everyday but no one cares. Come to think of it zoo animals generate revenues and thus are protected from extinction. Also “comfort” animals such as cats and dogs are also protected not because of kindness to these animals but rather because they give much “cozy. cuddly” comfort to the owners.

  17. nixity says:

    Yes but the skunk isn’t going to be wiped out any time soon – it has a sustainable population. The reason we hear about polar bears, gorillas, whales, etc is because these are animals that are having a hard time sustaining their population due to habitat loss, poaching, etc. Zoo animals do not generate enough revenue to protect their wild counterparts. If they did – the passenger pigeon never would have went extinct. In fact, the last bird died IN a zoo. If you can’t effectively breed the animals in a zoo (e.g., Whales) then it is very hard to offer a solid conservation effort that will really help in the long run. They are doing the best they can, but it’s contributions and entrance fees to the zoo that help them afford these efforts in the first place.

  18. Stevie the Biology student. says:

    I couldn’t give you a number. No one can because we don’t know the current populations up to the minute. But I can tell you that 99% of all species that have ever lived on this planet are now extinct.
