The Arctic is warming more rapidly than other region on the planet, and species are dying rapidly. Polar bears have less sea ice to give birth to, and fish and krill can't adapt in time to the warmer waters. I choose this website because it shows the food web and what is happening.
The Arctic's shiny surface and reflective ice reflects the suns rays back into space, making the Artic warmer than it should be. Even a two degree Fahrenheit change could be devastating to all the animals in the Artic. I chose these article because it is very informative.
Many Arctic animals, such as polar bears, seals, walruses, and seabirds, rely on the sea’s biological productivity and on the presence of sea ice, both of which are highly dependent on climatic conditions. Many fish and other small organisms depend on the ice algae, which forms on the bottom of the ice, and if the ice melts, it doesn't only affect the algae, it also affects the saltiness of the water, causing more amphibians, seals, and walruses die to the unexpected freshness. I chose this website because it shows what's happens to every single animal and how they will/might die.
Phytoplankton, the base of the food chain, is blooming earlier than usual, making them pre mature and unstable, causing more deaths than births. This video explains how the thinning ice could mean real big trouble for multiple animals. Walruses depend on the ice for hunting, polar bears for survival, and if they die, the whole food chain does too. I choose this video because it is both entertaining and informative.
