Description

Our world is getting warmer, and the polar ice caps are melting. A polar bear needs the ice to survive, but many scientists believe that climate change may make it impossible for polar bears to live in the wild as soon as 2020. Why is the ice melting? What can we do to protect the Arctic environment that is home to unique wildlife? Read and find out!
