At the top of the food chain, polar bears have an important role in the marine environment. Learn how WWF is fighting the biggest threat to polar bears’ survival: loss of sea ice.
superchanryan's insight:

 

Because of ongoing and potential loss of their sea ice habitat resulting from climate change, polar bears were listed as a threatened species in the U.S., across their range, under the Endangered Species Act in May 2008.

 

Polar bears spend over 50 percent of their time hunting for food, but less than two percent of their hunts are successful. Their diet mainly consists of ringed and bearded seals because they need large amounts of fat to survive.

Article on conservation efforts done to save polar bears

 

THE INTERNATIONAL AGREEMENT ON CONSERVATION OF POLAR BEARS AND THEIR HABITAT, 19731.

 

This agreement states that the five polar bear nations (Canada, Greenland, Norway, the United States, and the former Soviet Union) shall protect polar bear habitat, especially denning areas, feeding areas, and migratory routes; ban hunting of bears from aircraft and large motorized boats; conduct and coordinate management and research efforts; and exchange research results and data.

  Polar bears are protected under the U.S. Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA).
