Polar bears in the Hudson Bay are in danger of dying out completely as global warming melts away the ice they depend on to hunt for food.
At the southern edge of their range in the Hudson Bay, polar bears are losing weight and cubs are starving to death as global warming melts away their icy habitat. Each year, more and more polar bears die as their ice is destroyed by global warming pollution.
Compared to 20 years ago, there are now about 30 more days a year when the Bay isn't covered in ice, causing bears to spend nearly four weeks longer with nothing to eat -- and leaving the polar bears about 70 pounds thinner on average.
The approximately 900 polar bears in the western Hudson Bay are already in danger of dying out completely.
The polar bears further north in Alaska still have hope, but only if we reduce global warming pollution.
