Accelerating arctic ice melt down has not only impact on the raising of global watter level and flooding shelf areas and cities but has impact on species living on the ice too. One of this species is polar bear. Based on study, polar bears have to swim much longer distances to reach a stable ground. This is especially ┬áproblem for females with young cubs. The survival rate for cubs that survive the first year has dropped from 65% to 43% in last 30 years. The co-author of a study that used GPS technology to track bears, Geoff York of World Wildlife Fund, said that “Climate change is pulling the sea ice out from under polar bears’ feet, forcing some to swim longer distances to find food and habitat,”. The survival of young cubs is the most important factor that will have extreme impact on the future not only bears but all the species of this planet.
