Essay Title: Polar bears are endangered
Polar bears are one of the countless species who are endangered. They were one of the first animals affected by global warming and their population is heavily decreasing. Around 1980, the Arctic was as large as 8 million square kilometres. In 2011, studies show that the Arctic has reduced its size to 4.5 million square kilometers. In the future, will there be anything such as the Arctic? Scientist predict by 2040, only a fringe of ice will remain in Northeast Canada and Northern Greenland. This is known as the Last Ice Area. This matter is mostly taking part in Canada, since; Canada holds more than half the world’s polar bear population. Other affected countries include the U.S. (Alaska), Greenland, Russia, and Norway (the Svalbard archipelago) .There are solutions to slow down global warming but unless we all act together, then there is no hope for the polar bear inhabitants of earth.
CAUSES OF THE PROBLEM

Polar bears may become extinct in the future, but if we make an effort now, then we can prevent that. Why destroy the environment and destroy a whole animal race for our regular human habitats. We are no different than criminals in jail and we are murders as well. Humans should make global warming a priority and execute ideas and plans to solve the destruction waiting to happen on the polar bears. Since Canada holds the majority of the population, we should step up and do something to encourage everyone to take a step. No money can replace a whole community of animals.
