									The Polar Bear
         This 8-10 foot tall
        bear, weighing 500-
          1,000 pounds, is
         endangered in the
        Arctic and Antarctic
              regions.
Polar bears are
  threatened by:

Global warming.

Chemical pollutants
 in the bear’s prey
 species are eaten by
 the bears.

Oil and gas
 development.
If this animal becomes
   extinct, it could affect
   many other animals.
   This animal preys on
   seal and walruses,
   then leaves the
   remains for other
   scavengers. This could
   cause an overgrowth in
   the seal and walrus
   population. Also, artic
   foxes rely specifically
   on polar bear
   leftovers. This would
   cause the foxes to be
   left without food.
This animal could be
  protected from
  extinction by
  becoming aware of
  global warming and
  how to prevent it.
  Also by stopping the
  development of oil
  and gas in the Artic
  region.
