The Polar bear is animal that is admired around the
world for its looks and cute appearance. For anyone who had never seen
one of these animals in the world they would link them with the polar bears
on the coke cola commercials. Don't let these cute looking animals fool
you, as anyone who has seen them in the wild would tell you. These creatures
are yet to be fully understood. Research is currently on the effects of
global warming on the lives of the polar bear. Their behavior patterns
sometimes are hard to understand but sometimes it appears they are smarter
than we think.
The research in this article is to do with the
effect of global warming on the survival of the Polar Bear. The adaption
that the polar bear may have to do could be impossible. The polar bears
starve them selves from summer till autumn due to lack of food. This threatens
to extend the period of starvation due to the warmer periods lasting longer.
During the winter the polar bear does most of it's feeding. They go out
on the frozen waters hunting for their favored prey ringed seal pups. This
is done by waiting nearby a hole in the ice for the pups to come up for
air and then with one bite dinner is theirs. The effects of this global
warming is also affecting the people who live in the near by town as this
means that the bears will be spending more time on the mainland. This could
be a serious problem, as they have been known to cause large amounts of
damage when they stray in to the towns.
