When most people think of the Arctic, they can’t help but think of polar bears. What makes these bears so impressive – their adaptation to sea ice – also makes them vulnerable. Polar bears rely on ice floes to hunt seals and move from one area to another. As ice floes melt and spread further apart, polar bears struggle to find food, establish territory and raise their young.
