The polar bear is depended on the arctic ice pack to hunt seals. With the disappearance of the ice pack polar bears are quickly becoming extinct. I have seen a polar bear attempt to prey on Walrus and get mangled by the tusks of the great beasts. There is a small population of Polar Bears surviving at Moose Factory Manitoba living off of the town's garbage dump.
Polar bears are not becoming extinct, for fact they are growing in population, but they will become extinct because of us humans. Using up to much energy and green house gases which pollute are atmosphere which causes global warming , therefore it warms Earth and melts the sea ice and the The polar bear depends on the sea ice to hunt.
Tasmanian devils, wolfs, coyotes, dugongs, tuna, panda bears are all endangered and the saber tooth tiger is fully extinct. hope that helps :) Thylacine (marsupial of Australia); extinct, Grey Wolf, Dodo Bird, Passenger Pigeon - hunting from sailors. Nearly extinct: Arctic Fox Asian Elephant Common Loon Cod Blue Shark Emperor Penguin Grizzly Bear Polar Bear Leopard Frog Meercat Giant Panda Orangutan
There are a few endangered penguin species, true. But the polar bear is not an endangered species, and is listed as vulnerable. The polar bear currently numbers around 20000 to 25000 animals, although some local populations appear to be declining, a couple are increasing, others fairly stable. Most scientists agree this animal's numbers have always been less than 35000 at its peak, because of the vast terrain and inhospitable environment.
We just keep doing what we are doing. We know that polar bear populations were between 5,000 and 10,000 just 40 years ago and today we know they number over 25,000. They are still considered threatened, but are not endangered. Over hunting has been their only issue in the past. Some groups claim that global warming could someday be an issue for these beautiful, yet deadly carnivores.
