The ice at the North Pole is constantly melting because: Pollution clogs up the atmosphere, so it traps greenhouse gases inside the Earth. Greenhouse gases keep us warm, so they're normally a good thing, but now we have wayyyyy to much. Polar bears need ice to live on. (hello, they can't swim forever!) Also, they catch their fish through holes in the ice.

Yes. The polar sea ice is shrinking each year. Each year the winter sea ice melts faster. Polar bears need to bulk up in winter by eating seals. Now they have a shorter time for feeding. The Hudson Bay bears are forced onto the land during summer where they compete for food and living space with humans and other animals. Food shortages mean that bears are weaker, fewer cubs are born and those that do are more likely to die.

Global warming means that the Arctic sea ice is melting. Polar Bears need this sea ice to help them in their feeding and breeding.
