In order to survive, polar bears need sea ice. It’s their land. It’s where they set up home and hunt and live. Without these great hunks of ice, their species will die out. And climate change is risking that very outcome. Our actions as humans are impacting polar bears. We’ve got a video for you here that shows just how far some polar bears have to swim to find new sea ice. It’s shocking.
