One of the many signs of global warming is changes in animal populations and homes. Something similar is seen with the rapidly declining Alaskan polar bear population.
It is reported that between 2001 and 2010, there was a 40 percent decline in the Alaskan polar bear population. This drop is attributed to the migration of polar bears to Russia from Alaska due to rising temperatures in Alaska. Over the past 50 years, Alaska’s annual average temperature has increased by 4.8 degrees Celsius. This rise has resulted in the loss of sea ice which directly affects bears by releasing their hunting grounds. Migration has led to a dramatic increase in the number of polar bears on Wrangel Island in Russia.
The news sparked serious debate about climate change on social media, with many voicing their concerns about the climate crisis while some refuting it.
watch out for bears. They tell us something! https://t.co/IdnjIp1np0

Human activity creates global warming, which produces habitat fragmentation, is equivalent to the extinction of species !!

Unfortunately, they evolved to live on ice floes, and the further south they move, the harder it is to find food and survive on land. their future is not clear… hybridization / regime change can play a role, but who knows!

It is -26 C here today. Where can I order climate change to warm it up in my area? ps don’t tell the bears the temperature here because i don’t want them here. Thank you

It’s pretty darn cold in Canada. Record low temperatures. Stop the BS.

This is not the first time that polar bears have been seen migrating to colder places. In 2019, around sixty polar bears were seen in one of the The most remote regions of Ryrkaypiy Russia.
